Morad Bouchakour (Brussels, November 8 1965) graduated from the Royal Academy of Arts, The Hague in 1995. He then relocated to New York to work as a freelance photographer. In 1996 he became the first Dutch photographer selected to take part in the World Press Photo Masterclass. The Netherlands Foundation for Visual Arts, Design and Architecture. Bouchakour’s work brings together a variety of disciplines. Both his independent photography and his commissions for international magazines and advertising agencies are characterized by the proximity he maintains between the camera and his subject, to create strikingly spontaneous and intimate images.
