Capturing Casablanca: Street photographer Yoriyas Yassine Alaoui Ismaili

Stunning photography of everyday life by Yoriyas Yassine Alaoui Ismaili. Yassine Alaoui Ismaili, also know as Yoriyas is a Casablanca-based photographer and choreographer. His work has been featured in The New York Times, The National Geographic, Vogue, 6Mois, Spiegel, The guardian. 

He started playing chess when he was five years old, leading himto fall in love with mathematics. By the age of 16, the influence of hiphop changed him completely. He became a Breakdancer.While traveling around the world as a professional dancer for competitions, he discovered his passion for photography. The original blend of his North African heritage, chess and his love for dance lead him to one-of-a-kind methods of self-expression through photography.

Photography became my new way of expressing myself and thanks to the hip-hop street culture it was very natural for me to start as a street photographer. After that, I feel like my work started to take a more documentary direction, maybe it’s just because I love taking my time to realise projects!

I like the contrast of life which you can find in fascinating moments! I was meeting with a street photographer in Cologne to take pictures, and could not take a single good shoot! After I was walking down the promenade of the river Rhine with my girl and she started to be annoyed of me, taking pictures all the time…but just before she wanted to take and hide my camera I found this scene just in front of me! Sometimes things appear just in front of you, when you don't search any more! #germany #cologne #streetphotography #nun #streetdreamsmag #street_photography #street #myngadc #bestoftheday #vogue #voguefashionidsuperpremiumcollection #ig_street #ncg #magnumphotos #streetlife_award #streetbwcolor #myfeatureshoot #StreetPhotography #jesus_is_my_homeboy#street_photography #myfeatureshoot #religion #islam #lensculture #LACMA #IslamicArtNow #Photography #collectart #contemporaryphotography #life_is_street #lensonstreets #contemporaryphotography
