British-Moroccan photographer and designer Hassan Hajjaj is uniquely presenting the street culture of his native country by paying tribute to the biker gang women of Marrakesh.

In the photo series titled, Kesh Angels, Hajjaj photographed his friends as models and styled them by combining traditional Muslim clothing with modern, upbeat poses. The juxtaposition of traditional vs. modern is beautiful and edgy.

 

While the series no doubt has a sense of humour, conveyed through the use of bright pop-art colour and American brand name clothing items, the strength and energy of the street-smart biker girl subculture is captured.
