Huawei presents the #OO Gallery
Huawei associates with Paris Photo 2016 and presents an original and digital exhibition with renowned international photographers including Stéphane Lavoué, famous portrait artist for newspapers around the world, and Hassan Hajjaj, the Andy Warhol of photography.
Monochrome by Stéphane Lavoué
From Pierre Soulages to Salman Rushdie, from Francois Hollande to Vladimir Putin, artists, politicians, actors or intellectuals have all posed for photographs of Stéphane Lavoué. Equally at home in the art of portraiture than in reportage photography, he works regularly with international magazines.
Monochrome by Stéphane Lavoué is a singular project born from the alliance between Huawei and Leica, working together to invent an exceptional camera integrated into a smartphone. In this series, the artist preaches his adoration for photography in black and white.
Hassan Hajjaj and the « Documenting Dream » Project
Hassan Hajjaj is a Moroccan-born and London-based artist known for his stylized photography that has earned him the nickname “the Andy Warhol of Marrakech”.
Vivid, Andy Warhol-esque photography, film and installation is the trademark of artist Hassan Hajjaj. Whether appropriating from hip-hop, North African heritage or Coca-cola crates, Hajjaj’s visual fingerprint is a comment on high and low branding and the effects of global capitalism which often manifests in energetic portraiture.
End of February 2016, Huawei, 3rd worldwide smartphones manufacturer, announced a long-term technology partnership with Leica, iconic brand for photography, affirming its ambition to reinvent smartphone photography. This alliance took shape in spring with the launch of Huawei P9, the smartphone with a dual lens camera.
