On this week’s episode I met with pop artist Hassan Hajjaj at one of my favourite art galleries in Marrakech where he was preparing an installation in advance of the 1-54 Contemporary African Art Fair kicking off this week. Hassan’s the photographer beyond the pop culture images of Madonna released last year following her 60th birthday celebrations in Marrakech. Despite the fact that he’s working on three projects for the art fair and just released photos of the latest celebrities he photographed at his studio, Hassan is always so kind to take time to meet with me for an interview.
So let’s listen in as Hassan and I chat about the process of bringing his photo shoots to life, identity and the upcoming art fair.
