Les m├ętamorphoses de Samuel Fosso

Claire Guillot, M, le magazine du Monde, November 17, 2021


 "Life did not spare the photographer Samuel Fosso. After having suffered, as a child, the war in Nigeria, he had to flee, as an adult, the violence in the Central African Republic. Faced with the tragedies, he very early on took the side of the humor and decided to have fun with the codes of traditional African studios. Over the years, his self-portraits have become more engaged, drawing on the history of the continent. The Maison européenne de la photographie is dedicating a retrospective to him until March 2022 ."
