Seydou Keïta. Photographs. Bamako, Mali 1948-1963

Seydou Keïta was born in Bamako, Mali in 1921, then part of the colony of French Sudan and a bustling transportation hub on the route to Dakar. With a Kodak Brownie given to him by his uncle, Keïta took up photography at the age of fourteen, going on to establish what would become Bamako’s most successful portraiture enterprise of the 1950s and 60s. Photographs, Bamako, Mali 1948–1963 draws on an expanded archive to offer over 400 portraits, mostly unpublished, from the height of the photographer’s productivity in downtown Bamako.
