Exhibition: Seydou Keïta
The Grand Palais dedicates an important retrospective to Malian photographer Seydou Keïta (1921-2001), considered as the father of African photography. The artist which came to fame in the 1990s in the West is today one of the greatest photographers of the second half of the XXth century. He is recognised for his mastery of framing but also light, for the way he shows off his subjects and for the modernity of his stagings and their inventiveness. From the end of the 1940s until 1977, date on which he retires, his works constitute an exceptional testimony of Malian society of his time’s daily life. This splendid exhibition can be discovered nearby the Green Hotels Paris, the Eiffel Trocadéro and the Gavarni, down the Champs-Elysées Avenue.
