Malick Sidibé is a Malian photographer known for his use of black-and-white photographs to portray the popular culture in Bamako during the 1960s. The photographs above are from some of Malick Sidibe's popular exhibitions. I am fascinated by the classic, vintage aesthetic of Malick Sidibé's work. After examining these photographs, I'm feeling inclined to look through my parents' pictures for some fashion inspiration. I'm already hanging on to my mum's beautiful vintage dresses and skirts, which I adore.
