Hassan Hajjaj

VOGUE, The Arab Issue

14 February — 20 September, 2020

Hajjaj's art is absolutely bursting with the joy of colours and life, patterns, energy, rhythm, and ingenuity.

Full of vibrant colours, speed, and rhythmic sway, the Moroccan roots are clearly visible in Hassan Hajjaj's work, mixed with contemporary London expressions. He is an artist that always creates while listening to music, preferably out in the street.

In VOGUE, The Arab Issue at Fotografiska, in collaboration with Maison Européenne de la Photographie in Paris, several of his photographic series are shown, often unique, often with frames made from anything, from bicycle tires to cans with Arabic logos. The title alludes to how he is using Moroccan friends or friends of friends, and designs to create his fashion photographs, not ones flown in from the West.

Something for a certain fashion magazine to consider...

The Exhibition is produced in collaboration with Maison Européenne de la Photographie, Paris.

“For me it began when I, as a twelve-year-old newcomer in London, wanted to show my friends something from my native country. They came from places like the Caribbean, Brazil, and India, places brimming with cultural belonging familiar to everyone: reggae, Pelé, samba, calypso, rai-music, and more. I wanted them to know that I was also from a cool place, so I created things, graffiti, and scenarios, that I shot with a borrowed camera...", says Hajjaj.
