Imane Djamil (b.1996, in Casablanca, Morocco) is a Casablanca-based artist whose practice spans photography, storytelling, and creative-writing. Her work straddles a very fine line between reality and the sublime in what she calls ‘mental geographies'. Her work, which is located at the crossroads of fine-art and documentary photography, explores places in ‘post-traumatic transition,’ where History engenders a metaphorical dialogue with personal anecdotes.
Djamil has participated in several residencies including Escales liées at The French Pavililon of the Venice Architecture Biennale in 2018, Mujeres y el Mediterráaneo in 2019 at the Casa Mediterraneo in Alicante, Spain in 2019, and most recently the the Summer’s Lab at le Cube- Independent Art Room in Rabat, Morocco in 2020. Her work has been exhibited throughout Europe and Morocco, most notably as part of Le Maroc Contemporain at Institut du Monde Arabe in Paris, France in 2014 and, En un instante, Marruecos at the Casa Arabe as part of PhotoESPAÑA’s official selection in 2018. In 2021, she was awarded the New Narratives in Environmental Photography prize by Fisheye magazine and La Gacilly photo festival for her work 80 Miles to Atlantis.
