Renowned for his black and white photographs that documented youth culture in the Malian capital of Bamako during the 1960s, Malick Sidibé (Malian, 1935/36 - 2016) opened his first photography studio in 1958. Later in his career, Sidibé directed his practice towards studio portraiture, using his background in fine arts to create eclectic tableaux-vivants of his subjects. It was in the 1990s that the artist was propelled to international fame, after his discovery by French photographer Françoise Huguier. Sidibé’s works are held in the permanent collections of institutions such as MoMA, New York, and J.Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles. In 2007, he was awarded the prestigious Golden Lion Award for Lifetime Achievement at the Venice Biennale.
