Artists' portrait... Zoom on Delphine Diallo, committed photographer

Welcome in my series of portraits dedicated to committed women photographers. The women I will introduce you to are all intimately convinced of the social role played by photography as a document. For them, photography is a way to give their point of view, to tell a multitude of stories, to share.

Zoom on... Delphine Diallo

Delphine Diallo on Kelen, African art promotion

Delphine Diallo is Franco-Senegalese. Graduated in 1999 from the Charpentier Academy (visual arts category) in Paris, she has been working for seven years in the music industry before starting photography. She, then, went to Saint-Louis-du-Sénégal, city from which her father is.

It is in a studio she named "Magic", in tribute to the Malian photographer Malick Sidibé, that she shoots and unveils members of her family through portraits in which proudness, importance and wisdom outshine. She doesn't hesitate to put in the front women, cultural minorities and the youth through pictures that are not possible to feel indifferent about.

Here is my selection of pictures from Delphine Diallo:

Today, Delphine lives and works in New York.
