About this Item

New York: The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, 2001. (11 x 8 1/2 in., 27.8 x 21.5 cm). 28pp. First edition. Number 11 of the Paper Series on the Arts, Culture and Society. Stapled wrappers (creased from rear near heel, two very small droplet accretions verso, else clean, tight and very near fine). Contains 3 full page illustrations of photographs (serviceable, photocopy quality). From the text: "To say that the youth in Bamako saw themselves in Sidibé's photographs is to state that his style was modern, and that his photographs presented a Bamakois that was beyond tradition. By leaving the studio to follow young people outside, Sidibé was also discovering his style. At the conscious and unconscious levels, Sidibé's eye was being trained to recognize the youth's favorite movements and postures during dancing, their hairdos, and their dress styles. By following the youth, he began to acquire their aesthetic taste, instead of imposing old-fashioned photographic models on them. This is why the youth in Bamako considered Sidibé's photography to be realistic: he recognized their style and used his camera to immortalize it." While Diawara's essay is readily available online, printed copies are uncommon. Bookseller Inventory # 2011661
