Malian portrait photography by Dan Leers( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This catalogue introduces readers to Malian photographers Malick Sidibé and Seydou Keïta and others whose images visualize an influential form of post-colonial African identity. The influence of Malian photographers Malick Sidibé and Seydou Keïta has been widespread since their emergence on the international scene in the 1990s. Their intimate black and white photos integrate pattern, decoration, portraiture, and iconography in entirely new ways, bespeaking a new post-colonial African identity. This catalogue features an essay and artist biographies that survey the major practitioners and innovators in Mali. Designed by artist François Deschamps, the book accompanies an exhibition of vintage and recent prints by Keïta and Sidibé, as well as Hamidou Maïga, Abdourahmane Sakaly, and Tijani Ádìgún Sitou, curated by Daniel Leers at the Dorsky Museum of Art.0Exhibition: Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art, New York, USA (23.01.-14.04.2013)

Seydou Keïta by Seydou Keita( Book )

9 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in 3 languages and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The thousands of portraits that Keïta took form an outstanding record of Malian society between the end of the Forties and the early Sixties. His photographs have become - in addition to their sociological value - works of art, free from tricks, eccentricity, or any attempt at illusion. As such they have acquired an objective character and a timeless dimension. Through his quest for accuracy, Seydou Keïta seems intuitively to have reinvented the art of the portrait. At a time of interest in other cultures, this work of rare beauty takes a deserved place in the world history of photgraphy.--Book jacket

Seydou Keïta : photographs, Bamako, Mali 1948-1963 by Seydou Keita( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Seydou Keita 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, Keita 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 "Photographs, Bamako, Mali 1949-1970" draws on an expanded archive to offer over 400 portraits, mostly unpublished, from the height of the photographer's productivity in downtown Bamako. Providing lushly patterned backdrops and props that now serve to date distinct periods in his career, the artist often styled his subjects but also encouraged their active participation, hanging sample portraits around the studio as inspiration. Migratory youth, government officials, shop owners and Bamako's cultural elite all make appearances here, and while Keita's photographs served as both family record and cultural status symbol for the clients who commissioned them, these images have become a lasting visual record of Mali at that time
