Unseen work by Mali’s most celebrated living photographer Malick Sidibé will be shown at the Lichfield Studios in London. Sidibé became the first photographer to be awarded the Lion d'Or for Lifetime Achievement at the Venice Biennale in 2007.
There is one photo I remember seeing many years ago, in one of the papers. It was of a young African couple (m & f) in France, dancing the jive or ceroc. It's got very much a late-50s / early-60s feel to it, judging from his slim tie, crepe-soled shoes and general très cool. Sorry, I can't remember the woman's dress style. I wonder if it's the same photographer? I'd love to see that photo again. I know it's not much to go on, but people here have identified obscure songs from less information than this.
This looks like a must-see, along with the one at the BM.
