In his artistic practice, M'hammed Kilito makes frequent use of portraiture as a mean to reflect on various contemporary social issues. The conceptual framework of his photographic series usually follows two axes. The first, focuses on the boundaries that define reality and illusion, in which he creates the moment by staging the photographs. The second, is more within the documentary tradition, M'hammed plays with various contexts to tell stories, and instead of creating the moment, he seizes it. During the last year, he focused his lens on the role of globalization and its effects on the standardization of cultures. His work in the Homo photographicus series explores the transformation photography is going through at this crucial moment in the history of images. He ponders over the role of digital and compact cameras' proliferation, their incorporation into mobile telephones, and the influence of the internet and social networks on today's photography practice.

M'hammed was born in Lvov, Ukraine. After growing up in Morocco and living in Spain, he decided to pursue his graduate studies in Canada. He obtained a Master's Degree from the University of Ottawa in 2012 and completed a Bachelor's Degree at the University of Montreal in 2010. His work has been widely exhibited, including at the Visual Voice Gallery, at the University of Montreal's Exhibition Center and at the University of Ottawa. An exhibition is also scheduled at the Santa Pintada Gallery, Barcelona in April 2014. Read Less
