Kawtar Ouh is based in Brussels and grew up as the youngest of four children in a Moroccan and Riffian household. From the age of ten, the young photographer was interested in photography after being fascinated by the reality series America’s Next Top Model. Not much later, her very supportive father gave her her first camera. Result: she loved it and still does.
Surrounded by a pair of traditional Moroccan dresses with a lot of antique Tamazight jewelry, Kawtar Ouh vividly explains how the Moroccan culture, the locals, the typical colors, and scents inspired her to try something new. “I took most of my photos in Morocco out of a moving car. So they’re snapshots, which I don’t manipulate because I want to show the purity of the photographs.”
