SORY SANLE’ VOLTA PHOTO 1965-85
Burkina Faso photographer Sory Sanle’ opened his Volta Photo portrait studio in 1960, the year his country gained independence from France. Working with his Rolleiflex twin lens medium format camera, Volta Photo was soon recognized as the finest studio in the city. His black and white images magnify this era and display a unique cultural energy and social impact.
This is the first book published on Sanle’ work and is released to coincide with the first solo international exhibition of his work in London in 2017.
