Maya Louhichi is a french-tunisian photographer and director.
After an audiovisual course and several cinema experiences, Maya decides to turn to photography and founds the webzine Freezmix.com dedicated to urban dance. 
From 2009 to 2014, she covers many events as a photographer and specialist journalist.
During this period, she produced several photographic series on the theme of bodily expression in the contemporary urban universe.
In 2015, Maya directed two documentaries, french-tunisian co-productions, which question the habits and living conditions of Tunisian society.
In 2018, the death of her father, film director Taieb Louhichi, marked a turning point in her artistic research which is now moving towards the representation of mourning, memory and the intimate.
