ESSAY FLORIAN EBNER
additional 8 pages booklet with text
Taken between 1964 and 1976, this series introduces new portraits of the inhabitants of Bagadadji, popular quarters of Bamako where Sidibé had his studio. The force of the final image, carried out under difficult conditions, displays the strength of Sidibé as a portraitist. He paid special attention to each sitter and preserved the memory of each unique, yet innumerable, sittings. With an essay by photo historian Florian Ebner, this book stresses the importance and the originality of his work. Sidibé received the Hasselblad Prize in 2003 and the Gold Lion to Biennial of contemporary art of Venice in 2007.
