Visions From Our Own Worlds

This is a collaboration with a famous photographer Mohamed Keita, who lives and works in Rome.

Mohamed Keita was born in Côte d’Ivoire in 1993. At the height of the civil war, when he was 14 years old, he started a long journey alone through Guinea, Mali, Algeria, the Sahara, Libya and Malta to arrive in Italy in 2010, at the age of 17. He discovered an innate vocation as a photographer and started his career at the Civico Zero Center for minors in Rome. In 2017, Keita opened a photographic laboratory for street children in Mali and, for some years, has been mentoring the boys of the Civico Zero Center. In 2019, he was awarded an Honorable mention by the jury at Photolux in Lucca.
