Seydou Keita

The studio photographer Seydou Keita (1921-2001) began his career in 1945 in Bamako, French Sudan (now Mali). Although Keita was self-taught, he established a strong reputation and people traveled miles to visit his studio. There are incredible textiles documented in these and many more of his pictures, not to mention the people.
