Objects in the photography of Seydou Keita
In this interview, I discuss the meanings of objects in the portraits made by Seydou Keïta (1921-2001). In his studio, located near the Bamako train station, he portrayed expressions, clothing and tastes of visitors passing by. Taken between 1948 and 1962, the images also show a period of transformation in Mali as the country moved towards independence in 1960.
