Mous Lamrabat

December 10, 2020

Mous Lamrabat is a Moroccan-Belgian photographer who mixes ostentatious luxury, fashion, and oriental tradition, producing offbeat and provocative imagery. Creating in natural settings, he seeks to capture the poetry of simplicity. Reinventing what it means to photograph fashion, Lamrabat is particularly well-known for his images of dreamy masked bodies in pastel shades, visually translating the obsessive character of Morocco with its brand image. Constantly plating with his style, the artist sometimes takes abstract images in flash, sometimes with vivid and indigenous colors, making his work hard to categorize, but also appealing, both in terms of its visuals and backstory.
