Photographer Hassan Hajjaj on mixing Moroccan culture and pop art
Mixing photography, pop culture and furniture design, Hassan Hajjaj has created 30 years of artwork that celebrates what a culture can offer as unique while also recognising what people everywhere have in common. Inspired by music, fashion, London's underground parties and the souks of Marrakesh, Hajjaj's work is born out of his time living in both countries and the view he was given of Morocco once he went to live in the UK. He joined us for Perspective.
Hajjaj's collections include the "Kesh Angels", a group of motorbiking women in Morocco.
A retrospective of his work opens at the Maison Européenne de la Photographie in Paris on September 11 and will run until November 17.
