Zied Ben Romdhane


“Zied is a documentary photographer who is using aesthetics in a tasteful way to invite the audience to his stories. His work is not pushing facts but instead he uses careful compositions that leaves room for the viewer to reflect on the images and their content.”

- Rebecca Simons, Finland, independent curator, editor and educator
