Seydou Keita at the Grand Palais

Seydou Keita at the Grand Palais

Regarded today as one of the greatest photographers of the second half of the twentieth century, the great African portraitist Seydou Keita (1921 – 2001) is represented by this fascinating retrospective featuring some 200 of his works, taken from 1948 to 1959, that is now on show at the Grand Palais. His work is an essential testimony regarding the Malian society of his time and provides an insight into the last years before the country gained independence. The official photographer of Mali until 1977, Keita was largely self-taught. He specialised in portraiture and his choice of subject, mastery of framing and lighting, and the distinctive modernity and inventiveness of his compositions earned him well-deserved international acclaim.
