C&C visits Malick Sidibe

C&C were very happy to be able to visit Malick Sidibe whom we admire very much. Malick Sidibe is widely considered a pioneer in African photography.

During our 2 week mission in Mali we had the chance to meet and conduct a 40 min. filmed interview with Malick. We had some really interesting talks about his work and his thoughts about the Commerce & Culture Stock Program at Cadre de Promotion pour la Formation en Photographie (CFP). Malick Sidibe is widely considered a pioneer in African photography and has received numerous awards including the Venice Biennale's Golden Lion , Hasselblad Award , and the ICP Infinity Award
