About

Mirza Durakovic - Photographer Filmmaker Writer


Parisian photographer, filmmaker and writer, born in former Yugoslavia within the Bosniak minority of the Sandžak region in southwestern Serbia, as the son of political refugees who came to Paris during the Yugoslav wars. Raised in the banlieue of the French capital since the age of four.

After five years of work experience in the international development sector in Paris, Brussels and London as a Grants Manager, I decided to focus on artistic projects that I had been developing in parallel to my professional career. Since then, I have been directing and writing short films while studying photography through workshops, practice and photojournalism assignments, including a project on which I am currently working for the international NGO Witness Change.

Fluent in English, French, Serbo-Croatian and Italian. Always eager to work and learn. If you would like to discuss a project or collaboration, let's get in touch!
