Coinciding with the launch of his new exhibition Hassan Hajjaj: La Caravane, join the visionary photographer as he explores his career so far.

About

Born in Larache Hassan Hajjaj moved to London aged 12, his distinctive work combines the cultures of these two global cities as well as aesthetic influences of commercial brands, identity and youth culture. His bold portraits draw on the personalities of the subject through his trademark visual prism using patterns, fabrics and recurring motifs to create works that are both familiar and unfamilar while being wholly unique. 

Hassan will be joined by writer, cultural commentator and award-winning broadcaster Ekow Eshun who has also contributed text to the exhibition catalogue which will be available to purchase on the night. The two will discuss the new solo exhibition, Hassan's first in the UK in seven years as well as his working process, the underlying themes and influences within the world of contemporary photography.
