M'hammed Kilito (b. 1981, Lviv) is a documentary photographer and a National Geographic Explorer residing in Casablanca. His artistic journey revolves around exploring the intricate connections and bonds that individuals, both women and men, form with their environments—be it places of residence, memories, or transit points. Kilito's work is dedicated to capturing narratives that provide insight into this profound connection, delving into subjects like cultural identity, labour sociology, and the impacts of climate change.

Kilito holds a Bachelor's degree in Political Science from the University of Montreal and a Master's degree in Political Science from Ottawa University. His work has garnered awards and grants, including World Press Photo Regional Prize, Louis Roederer Prize for Sustainability, National Geographic Society Explorer Grant, Contemporary African Photography Prize, Photography Prize of Fondation des Treilles, and Sheikh Saoud Al Thani Project Award. He has also been a finalist for the Leica Oskar Barnack Award and nominated for Prix Pictet.

His photography has been showcased in various festivals and venues worldwide, including the Leica Ernst Leitz Museum (Germany), Sharjah Art Foundation (UAE), 1:54 Art Fair (France), Tate Modern (UK), PhotoESPAÑA Festival (Spain), National Museum of Photography (Morocco), Addis Foto Fest (Ethiopia), Format Festival (UK), Bosnia and Herzegovina National Museum (Bosnia and Herzegovina), Photo Vogue Festival (Italy), and Misk Art Institute (Saudi Arabia). His work has also been featured in publications such as The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, The British Journal of Photography, Vogue Italia, L'Express, Liberation, and El Pais.

Together with three other Moroccan visual artists, Kilito co-founded KOZ, a collective dedicated to telling compelling stories through long-term projects.

The profits (AED438 / $119.25) of each print sold will be given to artists currently in Gaza and the West Bank.

Prints are available for AED495.00 ($134.77). Here are the costs:

  • Printing and packaging: AED32.00 ($8.71)
  • 5% VAT: AED25.00 ($6.81)
  • Shipping: paid additionally by you, the buyer, and goes directly to the shipping company — no profits are generated from this.
  • Transfer fees: this cost depends on the recipients choice of transfer method, but this will be covered by the facilitating parties, and will not impact the final profit value

Gulf Photo Plus has been selling artwork by regional photographers since 2013, sharing profits equally. For this sale, all profits will be transferred to the Arab Fund for Arts and Culture (AFAC), which will then be distributed by AFAC to a group of Palestinian image-makers — how they use these funds is then wholly at their discretion. We will publicly provide proof of transfer at the conclusion of the sale.
