He is a self-taught photographer. His adept eyes choose to celebrate the unseen feelings hidden in the lives of ordinary people. Hailing from an underprivileged family, Moustapha has been a truck cleaner, a detergent sachet seller, and many more. It is this tough life journey that has guided his photographic vision. Following a documentary style, he captures everyday moments and the people contained in such transient moments in such way that viewers feel as if they themselves are there in that frame and also find that photographic experience relatable to their own life. His signature photographic style is using layers to convey the emotions of his various subjects and the background environment in which they are present, all in a single frame. His favored technique is to shoot in black and white as he feels it adds a stark quality to his photos and also brings depth to the subjects.
