    Achraf Baznani

    Achraf Baznani is a Moroccan artist photographer. He plays with optical illusions to create surrealistic, amusing and surprising photos. His signature: to put himself in the spotlight in a small size. Achraf Baznani owes his success to his series Inside My Dreams, in which he stages himself in a gigantic world through surrealist and poetic self-portraits.

    Luvelli

    Fine Art Documentarian, whose artwork references emotions as well as conveys social messages. His calculated photographic style is easily distinguished by the romantically raw subject matter and macabre atmosphere in his pieces.
