A-list French/Algerian photographer Michel Haddi will hold his debut exhibition in Dubai on March 18 on behalf of JAMM, a new independent art advisory in the city. Held at Toby Art Projects, a new art gallery space located in Al-Quoz, JAMM will exhibit limited-edition prints from Michel’s Celebrity series, as well as limited-edition prints from his recent series on the Youth of Morocco.

“When I think of fashion photographers, past and present, I think of names such as Cecil Beaton, Irving Penn, Richard Avedon, David Bailey, Helmut Newton and Mario Testino," explains HH Sheikha Lulu M Al Sabah, Partner and Founder of JAMM. "Their works are now sold at galleries and at auction, and viewed as art. We felt it was time to showcase the work of a fashion photographer from our own region. Being part Algerian, Michel Haddi represents the mix between East and West.”

The Michel Haddi exhibition opens on March 18 and runs to March 31 at Toby Art Projects Gallery Space @
