Seydou Keïta in Foam Photography Museum

The Bamako Portraits


Photography Museum Foam has a new exposition by Seydou Keïta. In the 50’s and 60’s people from Bamako came to his studio to pose for his lens. This was a special occasion for them so they all dressed up in beautiful gowns ranging from traditional wear to western outfits. See women in beautiful dresses with interesting headwear and men in Western outfits hanging casually against a motorcycle. Through his portraits you can witness the transition from being a French colony to the free capital of the independent Mali.
