Omar D.

Born in 1951 in Algeria, he has been practicing photography since he was 20 years old. The artist, who shares his life between Paris and Algiers, has been regularly exposing since 1998. “Omar Daoud is a sort of chronicler of Algeria”, writes Simon Njami, an intellectual from Cameroon. “This man, who is so rooted in the present and the past, thinks of nothing else but the future. Just as he heals the eyes of his patients, Omar’s images are meant to appease anyone who is looking at them.”
