is a young Moroccan photographer.
Abdela Igmirien is 25 years old. He comes from a small village named Igmir near Tafraoute, Morocco. A topographical engineer by profession, Igmirien realized that photography—specifically, portraits and street scenes—was his true calling. He first traveled to Shanghai to document daily life there, drawing inspiration both from fellow street photographers in the city, as well as from Japanese photographer Daidō Moriyama. In 2012, Igmirien moved to Beijing and found a rich arts scene, which made him want to go further in his work, filling out the background and providing more context.
