As a documentary photographer, Skander Khlif can call upon a wealth of different cultures. Born in 1983, he grew up in Tunis and learned about the art of photography during a school project. This experience made him aware of the power that photography has to reveal the beauty in each object. However, he didn’t follow this path immediately, and waited to finish his engineering studies before turning to it once again. Today based in Munich, He is documenting life on public spaces which he sees as a theatre stage where everyone plays their own role, creating scenes on different registers. An intriguing or humorous situation, a moving or romantic moment: Skander Khlif aims to reveal the beauty that surrounds us. Through geometric shapes and colours, he tells a story while retaining a note of mystery. Published and exhibited on several occasions, the artist was also the recipient of the Photomed-Lensculture Awards 2017
