Originally published in 2013 -and look how far Hassan Hajjaj came since then! Including Vogue shoots with Billie Eilish and a solo exhibition at Fotografiska in Stockholm. We love his work.
For the last few years, Hassan Hajjaj has been making waves with his fresh, clever portraits and installations. His elaborate portraits showcases a wealth of talents: from designing the clothes that his models are wearing to designing and making the furniture that they are photographed in, to the set and then taking the photos himself, he is a wunderkind. Aside from the aesthetic value of his work, his work is a social commentary on our modern times, aspirations, traditions, perception. We like very much his work and the concept behind and did I mention that he is self-taught? Shows you how much you can achieve if you put your back into it.
