Known for his highly colorful portraits teetering between documentary and fashion photography, Anglo-Moroccan artist Hassan Hajjaj integrates African prints and fabrics, canned products and manipulated logos into his compositions. He thus develops a kind of visual re-appropriation of global consumer products and presents a critical interpretation of oriental exoticism. This book, simply titled Hassan Hajjaj, and published in light of the artist’s retrospective at the Maison Européenne de la Photographie in September 2019, is the first major monograph of his work. It contains all his best-known and celebrated series as well as his previously unpublished black and white work.
