Kesh Angels, the work of Moroccan-born, UK-based photographer Hassan Hajjaj is a hallucinatory look into a young subculture that most people aren’t privy to – the Moroccan motorcycle girl gang. Women on scooters with Nike djellabas, knockoff designer slippers, heart-shaped shades and a flagrant disregard for perceived speed limits. They’re got the attitude and unblinking, unwavering stares of Russ Meyer film heroines, but the only killing these ladies are doing are with their threads.
It’s only a matter of time before this gets co-opted into an M.I.A music video – or maybe that’s kinda happened already…
P.S – If you like this, you might like this old post on the Hell’s Angels and the women who rode with them.
Kesh Angels is running at the Taymour Grahne Gallery in New York until March 8th
