Snapshots: Vintage Mali

((  Written By: Jamelia Mmari  ))  Malick Sidibé is a Malian photographer noted for his black-and-white studies of popular culture in the 1960s in Bamako. In 1995, his work was shown outside of Africa for the first time. Since then, his work has been exhibited throughout the world to international acclaim. I absolutely love his work, and treasure his book, Malik Sidibé Photographs, which is essential for anyone who appreciates vintage African imagery of everyday life.
