With the help of a pop-up studio on the streets of Morocco, London, Paris, and Kuwait and more, Hassan’s works are simultaneously an haute-couture street experiment and a revival of African photography from the 1960s and 70s. Hajjaj’s subjects range from musicians, fashion designers, dancers to singers, capoeira masters, and boxers; all of whom are immortalized in a fleeting moment in time, sealing their muse-like qualities forever. In these images, Hassan is photographing Malikah, a female Arab rapper.
Born in Larache, Morocco in 1961, Hassan arrived in London in his teens and grew up amid the emerging club culture in the UK. Known as the “Andy Warhol of Marrakech” Hassan is very much a child of the pop art generation. His work encompasses many techniques and fields, from designing and producing furniture including lamps, stools, and poufs made from recycled North African objects to custom made clothes and photography.
