From Seydou Keïta women portraits, 1952-1955 | © Seydou Keïta. The great African portraitist Seydou Keita lived in Bamako, Mali from 1921 to 2001. A self-taught photographer, he opened a studio in 1948 and specialized in portraiture. Seydou Keita soon photographed all of Bamako and his portraits gained a reputation for excellence throughout West Africa.

Dans les années 1950, il y avait trois photographes à Bamako : Seydou Keïta à Bamako Coura, Malick Sidibé à Bagadadji et Sakaly, un jeune Marocain, à Médina Coura. Notre préférence était Seydou Keïta pour les photos de studio, Malick pour les photos de surprises-parties et Sakaly pour les photos d’identité.
