Achraf Baznani is a Moroccan photographer and director born in Marrakesh. He learned photography by chance and self-taught when he received a compact EKTRA 250 camera for his birthday. Since then he has collected the awards in European competitions and exhibited his works all over the world, including at the Louvre Museum. Achraf Baznani spends his time travelling the world collecting prizes and recognition for his surreal photos.
Achraf Baznani 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.
Achraf Baznani uses photography to turn the idea into a real picture or closer to the truth. Unlike classical photography that captures the moment.
“I am an artist and a troublemaker!”
