Hicham Gardaf’s work addresses urban and suburban issues, particularly in the context of Morocco’s rapidly changing landscape. After having photographed his own neighbourhood and its inhabitants, Gardaf began several project series which are still ongoing: Intersections (2014), Provisional Structures (2015) and The Red Square (2015). Each series offers a different viewpoint on the newly transformed communities in Morocco’s suburbs, exploring environmental change, the results of unregulated suburban structures and the formation of new landscapes.

His work is held in the public collections of the Bibliothèque nationale de France, Paris; Marrakech Museum for Photography and Visual Arts (MMP +), Marrakech; Fondation des Treilles, Paris and Fondation d’entreprise Hermès, Paris.
