Hakim is a Professional Photographer, an Art Director and an Expert in Urban Aesthetics with a deep passion for exploring the streets. From a young age, he was attracted to all artistic activities. After receiving a diploma in Architecture, a diploma in Film making, he completed a PhD analysing the mutual inspiration between urban modernity an the art of short film.
Most of his street work is based on ordinary situations and daily events. He believes that the street is the sum of small moments, rather than one general frame. However, every ordinary moment can be transformed into an extraordinary one through the lens. The banal can become the most significant only if there is observation, patience, perseverance, composition and creativity. Each portrait of a city fragment has its own and ephemeral language. That’s the reason urban spaces are magical and why the image remains so essential.
