Africa Inside

Moussa Sakho

NO TITLE

The first photographic studios in Africa opened in the early 1930s. They made family portraits, and photographed important celebrations. Such photos had a special place in people's homes. Considerable attention was given to their presentation. People went to frame makers for the frames, and the framed photographs were displayed in a setting of curtains, flowers and cushions.Sakho wants to reach back to the roots of African photography. He makes portrait photographs and uses found photographs from the 1920s and '30s. Around them he creates collages with all kinds of found materials and objects, including wood, metal, food tins and beer cans. He seeks to unite photography, painting and sculpture with one another.
