"Mali Twist" is a collection of works by Malick Sidibé (1935-2016), a photographer from the Republic of Mali in West Africa. Sidibe was the first African photographer to win the Hasselblad International Photo Award. He studied photography with the Frenchman Gerard Guillat and founded a studio in Bamako, the capital of Mali, in 1962. After that, in parallel with commercial and journalism work, I photographed local young people like life work. The free-spirited appearance of young people who are sensitive to music and fashion overlapped with the appearance of their own country, which was gradually released from colonial rule, and also symbolized the appearance of seeking freedom in opposition to the socialist state. .. This book is a collection of catalog works published in memory of Sidibe in the wake of a large retrospective exhibition held after his death, and beautifully depicts the trendy young Africans on display. Like Sanle Sory, also from West Africa, who began to attract attention in the 2010s, there may still be many unknown photographers in postwar Africa.
