Hassan Hajjaj in "Vogue, The Arab Issue" at Fotografiska

Starting today, Hassan Hajjaj’s exhibition "VOGUE, The Arab Issue" is held at the Fotografiska Museum in New York. In collaboration with Maison Européenne de la Photographie in Paris, this exhibition brings together five important series developed over the past three decades.

 

‘VOGUE, The Arab Issue’ was inspired in the 1990s while Hajjaj was assisting his stylist friend on a fashion shoot in Marrakech. Hajjaj shares: “I realized all these people were from Europe using Morocco simply as a backdrop, which frustrated me but also made me think. I wanted to make it look grand. I wanted to take the Moroccan clothes and the people and shoot them in this celebratory way.” Please look forward to his work that challenges the viewer through an eclectic confrontation of styles, and invites them to re-examine cultural stereotypes and cliches. The exhibition opens until November 7.
