We are KOZ, a collective of four Moroccan visual artists working on long term projects and sharing a passion for storytelling. Aware of the rise of a fast, and sometimes gappy global media landscape, we focus on a hybrid and research-based work.
Often rising from a personal matter, our questions inevitably engage a dialogue with our world, diverse and complex yet interrelated. We believe, as born witnesses first, and as storytellers, that we can contribute to bring change through photography by grounding ourselves to our environment and shedding light on undocumented stories.
Koz, meaning 4 in amazigh, is an obvious pun that highlights the very essence of the members’ visual work, which, from documentary to fiction stand for a deeply rooted and keen urge of making sense of current events.
