Born in 1986 in Casablanca, Morocco.
Lives and works in Casablanca.

In 2004, Yasmine Hatimi left Casablanca for Madrid to pursue studies in cinematography and photography. After this rich experience, she returns to Morocco with the intention of rediscovering her country through a photographic quest.

At Jardin Rouge, she continues “her” butterfly hunt and questions the notion of virility and masculinity in Moroccan society through the series Chasing Butterflies. On a neutral territory, her subject is left to himself. She creates a moment of complicity where we can look at each other to better communicate.
Through this work, the artist wishes to break certain stereotypes that exist around the Maghrebi man, by offering a visual alternative to this identity.

Yasmine is part of Koz, a collective founded by four Moroccan visual artists working on long-term projects and sharing a passion for narrative. Her work has been presented in venues such as Photo España, PhotoSaintGermain, Alliance Française de Safi, and the Mohamed VI Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (Rabat). Her photographs have been published in El Pais, Mille World, Konbini, Nataal, Float photo magazine and CNN Arabic.
