About me II


Born in 1965 in Marrakech, Morocco, Ali Chraibi began photography in 1995, after a brief introduction in the French Institute. Two years later he participated in his first photography exhibition in Marrakech where his work was immediately noticed and selected to exhibit at the first edition of the festival “Photo España” in 1998, in Madrid.
Since then he participated in many exhibitions in Africa, Europe, North America and South America.
He has been selected in biennials and renowned festivals, such as the Contemporary African Art in Dakar, which earned him the award of “Au Sud du Sud”.
Furthermore, Ali Chraibi’s works have been shown in various museums and art centers around the world, including MuHKA in Antwerp, the ICP (International Center of Photography in New York), Miami Art Central in Florida and many more.
Very often in black and white, sensitive and humanist, with modesty and humility, his works always strive to highlight the core values.
Ali Chraibi photography has also been the subject of numerous publications.
