Studio Bamako By Feli & Pepita

Just WOW!
Gestern erreichten uns diese unglaublich tollen Fotos von dem Fotografen Duo Feli & Pepita. Ihr könnt Euch ab sofort die komplette Fotostrecke in der neuen Junior Style anschauen.

…und so wurde die Idee für die Studio Bamako Strecke geboren:
A few years ago we travelled through southern Africa. To cross the border from the Kingdom of Swaziland to Mozambique we had to get passport photographs for our visa. So we went to an old-fashioned photo studio to get some portrait shots. It was like entering a forgotten world. The camera which was used by the friendly photographer looked like one of the models you might have seen in a photography museum. We had to pose in front of a curtain and after having the pictures taken, we had to wait one hour for the images to develop.
Back home we found similar pictures in Feli´s family album. His father is from Algeria, North Africa, and there are only a few images he preserves, most of them taken in a similar surrounding.
We visited the exhibitions of Malick Sidibé and Seydou Keïta, two photographers from Mali, Africa in Paris recently. Sidibé and Keïta are famous for their portrait photography in the 1950s, 60s and 70s, the years after Mali´s independence. We were very impressed by the beautiful and expressive images and by the plain and simple sets they used in their studios. Their photographs reminded us of our photo session in Swaziland. The idea for our story was born. We call it ‘Studio Bamako’, for Bamako is the capital of Mali.

Wir finden man hätte das Thema nicht besser umsetzen können. Well done, Feli & Pepita!!!!
