Photo of the Day: The lady motorbike gangs of Morocco

Well, not so much biker gangs as working women commuting around their city, but still pretty cool. 

British-Moroccan photographer Hassan Hajjaj was inspired to create his photo series “Kesh Angels” (currently showing at the Taymour Grahne gallery in NYC) after working on a fashion magazine photo shoot in Marrakesh in the 1990s and realizing that “everything—all the models, the photographer, the clothes—were from the west and Morocco was simply the backdrop.” So he decided to shoot his friends, who mostly work as henna artists in the main tourist square, in the bright colors and smug poses of a badass biker fashion photo spread.
