Akim Zerouali

Born May 1st 1967 near Paris


In 1999, his sister, a photographer, offers him his first camera, a Zenith. Through the lens of this vintage Russian camera Akim,

self taught photographer, decides to record the world around him.


Later, equipped with a 6x6 and a 24x36, he travels the world from Paris to Queenstown via London, Dubai, Cape Town, Brussels,

Beirut, Istanbul and Palermo.


Through his live photographs he captures the emotions and atmosphere of fleeting moments.


In 2004, together with two friends who share his passion for photography, he creates the group “L’Oeil du Chacal”.

The purpose of their association is to offer three different perspectives of the same subject or place.

With this idea in mind, they have already travelled to Belgium, Poland and Rumania.
