2017 – work in progress — Morocco
About this series
Born in 1967 in Morocco, Arié Botbol grew up in Nice until 1971, then in Tel Aviv until 1974, before returning to live in France. After creating and developing his own communication agency for 15 years, he now devotes himself exclusively to photography.
Always looking for the lost paradise of his childhood, he has inherited from his birth country a taste for colours, flavours and refinement.
Even when he turns his camera towards other cultures (Madagascar, Sri Lanka, Rajasthan, Japan, Chile, Brazil …) his “Mediterranean mother” always remains a non ending source of inspiration.
He likes to tell simple stories, to create lively atmospheres and to construct images with rigorous composition. A lover of colour and graphic settings, he offers images full of humanity and intimacy.
In 2017 he joins the HANS LUCAS photographers’ agency and works for the national and local press. Since 2018, he has been working in Nice as a Photo reporter and Author.
