Born in 1956 in Paris, nobody could have predicted that Michel Haddi would become the talented fashion photographer we now know. At the age of just 18, the young French Algerian alternated between construction work and night surveillance to earn his living.He grew passionate about photography after discovering a shot by Helmut Newton on the cover of Vogue. Four years later, he moved to London as an assistant to the photographer Ben Lee. Frequenting the high temples of showbiz, he met arts journalists who offered him photographic assignments in the most illustrious European magazines. Throughout his career, he worked for majors such as Vogue, Vanity Fair and Harperâ€™s Bazaar. His collaborations with luxury brands incited him to travel the world to produce his advertising campaigns. He crossed paths with celebrities along the way, for whom he produced countless black and white portraits: Clint Eastwood, Johnny Depp, Angelina Jolie, the Red Hot Chilli Pepper and Kate Moss among many others. He now lives between London and New York, also devoting time to his publishing house when he is not participating in exhibitions.
