Africa Inside

Amadou Traoré

NO TITLE

Strong, raw and perplexing images of daily life. Snapshots that move past like a film. A diary from the heart of Africa. Traoré (b. Mali, 1948) rides around on his Vespa through the city recording the intimacy of families. With his camera he follows the everyday scenes in the lives of these people: a man and a woman sleeping in bed, a girl putting on make-up, a child undressing for bed. In addition he photographs the nights in Bamako: the bars and the people on the streets. Nothing is re-enacted. The photos must speak for themselves. In a country where reportage rules the roost, Traoré represents a new form of expression, a personal, almost musical way of photographing.
