Hassan Hajjaj, a Moroccan-born, UK-based artist, pays tribute to the biker culture of the young women of Marrakesh in vibrant photographs currently on show in New York.

His photos combine the tradition of African studio photography with the glossy aesthetic of the fashion shoot. His subjects are framed by consumer goods and adorned with the trappings of culture and branding.

A spokesperson for the Taymour Grahne Gallery, which is presenting his exhibition 'Kesh Angels, says: "His confident, upbeat portraits of young women wearing veils and djellabah while posing on motorcycles subvert preconceived notions of Arab women; his subjects are traditionally clad but defiantly modern, bearing bright smiles and the markers of youth, independence, celebration, and fun."

'Kesh Angels is at the Taymour Grahne Gallery, 157 Hudson Street, New York, until 8 March.
