Galleria Continua presents a new exhibition Traversées which displays a series of photographs by the late Leila Alaoui in its Les Moulins space in the Parisian country side.

The French-Moroccan artist was more than a photographer, she was a storyteller with a distinct point of view. Often focusing her gaze on marginalised subjects, Alaoui did not view her subjects as victims, capturing them with dignity and a sense of empowerment.

The exhibition features many of her works such as: No Pasara, Alaoui’s first photographic project, Crossings, a series of portraits of Sub-Saharan African migrants and her acclaimed series, Les Marocains, in which she travelled to Morocco with her mobile photo studio to capture the country’s cultural and ethnic diversity.

The show is onview till September 30.
