Enigmatic photograpsh inspired by Sufi spirituality – in pictures


Artist Maïmouna Guerresi's  images and videos capture a blend of western and African culture, all informed by Islamic Sufi spirituality. “The narrative of my work extends to a pantheistic feeling for nature, the search for the inner self and the female essence understood as spiritual evolution.”


Heady topics, and her works – including these from Rûh | Spirito, her show at Kyotographie, an international photography festival in Kyoto, Japan (until 8 May) – are rich in symbolism.
