Missions and objectives
Created in 2007, ZAKIRA (“Memory” in Arabic) is an NGO whose primary goal is to promote photography, and, more generally, the image in our society. Its objective is to enhance photographers’ work, to re-evaluate the importance of the image, to explore its impact and strength, and to create a circle of common interest open to all those interested in photography.
ZAKIRA‘s projects and activities aim to raise awareness among both professional and amateur photographers, buyers or plain observers, spectators and citizens of all ages and from walks of life.
