Muhcine Ennou
b. 1991, Morocco

Muhcine Ennou is guided by his intuition and his emotions. He bonds with his models, and gazes at the pictures for hours. "When I feel like I know my surroundings, my intuition can be narrative", In his pictures, we discover a certain tenderness, a feeling of evasion. “My work is a way of express my emotions. My aim is to bring the audience into my world, to make them feel the way I feel."

The act of looking is never neutral since one’s gaze is always influenced by their own discursive disposition. Gazing is, therefore, a performance that orders, shapes and classifies. Without this disposition, you are unable to follow the tacit conventions of a particular discourse, you are not introduced to these conventions, but rather you fall into them and eventually repeat them. They are governed by social rules; a “script” which is already there even though it is not explicit. Taking a picture is the result of being a part of something, in order to attune himself to what Muhcine Ennou calls “the sweet and sour spices of everyday life”. By participating in a specific cultural context, his work capture an embodied sociological narrative, a reaction to a somatic experience of a lived moment.
