Galerie 127 opens in 2006 and is exclusively dedicated to contemporary photography, first gallery of its kind in Maghreb. The primary intention was to "bring to Morocco that belongs to Morocco", a photographic heritage made across the country over the past 40 years by many international artists photographers. At the same time, the gallery develops the interest in the local creation as well as that produced by artists from the diaspora. Soon, for 14 years, the galerie 127 has organised in its walls seventy solo and group exhibitions, with works by artists usually inspired by their personal history, their quest for beauty and meaning. The gallery's major themes are photography related to Morocco, the Arab world and Africa. Furthermore, the promotion of Moroccan photography on the International scene is one of its main objectives. Noticed by its singular approach, the gallery was selected to represent Morocco at Paris Photo 2009. In 2013 the gallery is again selected for Paris Photo Los Angeles with a solo exhibition of carolle bénitah, then participated in Fairs like the first edition of Paris Photo Los Angeles (2014), 1: 54 London(2017) and Akaa, co-produced photo books and co-created the “Nuits Photographiques d'Essaouira” festival and after 10 years came back to Paris Photo 2018. As a curator, Nathalie Locatelli curated an exhibition at la Maison Photographique de Lille with Moroccan female artsits “Les Marocaines”. Very much concerned by the promotion of the photographic heritage of the country, the galerie 127 is also involved in parallel projects such as publishing books, as some monographs like Casablanca and Les pas perdus de Marco Barbon or Une femme française en Orient by Flore. Concerned about the quality of the local production the gallery also accompanies young Moroccan artists to build their "work" in reading the portfolio, editing and producing quality prints, to assist them later to reach a widest audience.
