Hassan Hajjaj photographie les bikeuses marocaines

Pour la première fois, le travail du photographe londonien d'origine marocaine Hassan Hajjaj est mis à l'honneur à New-York, à la Taymour Grahne Gallery, après son passage au Quai Branly à Paris en octobre 2010. On y retrouve sa célèbre série Kesh Angels qui immortalise en partie les bikeuses marocaines de façon décalée. Les femmes sont voilées, mais avec des foulards Nike. Leurs djellabas sont multicolores et leurs babouches customisées.
