Who I am

Born in 1988 in Algeria, Walid BERRAZEG is a documentary photographer and freelance photojournalist.

After a bachelor’s degree in management at the University of Tlemcen (Algeria), he moved to Paris to pursue a Master in Digital Marketing and Cybersecurity at the University of Créteil which he obtained in 2014.

What I do

While working in the IT sector, Walid launched into street photography, which led to covering the Parisian protests of recent years.

Today, he focuses his work on the East Asia region with the main subject of social and political movements in Hong Kong and Taiwan.

Ongoing projects

There are also two long-term projects underway: a first around the “Revolution of the Smile” in Algeria, as well as a second in the form of a documentary entitled “Suburbia”, dealing with the sensitive suburbs of the United States where it highlights the “re-appropriation” of the street by the locals.
