After the evaluation we went to the studio of Malick Sidibé, the famous photographer. He wasn’t there unfortunately but his son took our group photo. The studio was really small and full of old camera’s. The studio set-up was tiny as well and it was amazing to realize that he took so many great pictures there. We barely fitted in the small space with the 17 of us but we managed and we will soon have an amazing group picture.
Some of us tried out the studio of the famous master!
And this is the try-out of the group portrait!
After this we went straight to the home and studio of Abdoulaye Konaté, another famous artist. He showed us his amazing “tapestries”; large textile works on geopolitical conflicts and issues.
We were all very impressed by his work and were happy and grateful that he took so much time to talk to us and explain his work.
