The photos of Hicham Benohoud originate in a reserve against the Islamic traditions, culture, power and society. His work is both staged and documentary and touches both the tragic, playful and absurd. He uses the body, often his own body, in order to develop a reflection about identity, individuality, freedom and integrity. Values that are often threatened by social and cultural constraints. An example can be found in the work Petites images coupées, 2004. Through the repetition of the same portrait he reduces the image of man to an object. The work is a mysterious picture of cover and display, decoration and defamation, humanity and alienation.
