About me

Khalid Amakran (Rotterdam, 91) was born in a neighbourhood that could be considered as society's rock bottom. As painful and ugly as the situations were, I could still see the beauty of it. As an adolescent, I started to become increasingly interested in the human psyche and photography is now a way to investigate and expose the stories I come across.

Because I've always been confronted with my appearance as an albino, I have consciously focused on the differences and similarities between (groups of) people. This way I hope to get the small and big stories into the world. Human, vulnerable and authentic. Without wanting to make a statement, I take my audience into my world of experience and I explore the perception of my audience.
