The Expanded Subject. New perspectives in photographic portraiture from Africa.


« From 19th century studio practice through the independence era, African photography has been best known for modes of portraiture that crystallize the sitter’s identity and social milieu. Even portraits by present-day artists are often interpreted as windows into African realities. This publication reconsiders contemporary African photographic portraiture by presenting four practitioners whose concerns range well beyond questions of social identity. Sammy Baloji, Mohamed Camara, Saïdou Dicko, and George Osodi expand their subjects’ interpretive possibilities, exemplifying a new creativity and versatility in portrait-making. » (4ème de couverture). Photos en couleurs. Texte de Joshua I. Cohen, Sandrine Colard et Giulia Paoletti. Catalogue de l’exposition du même titre présentée à The Miriam & Ira D. Wallach Art Galley, Columbia University in the City of New York, du 7 septembre au 10 décembre 2016.
