Exhibition: Sory Sanlé – Volta Photo 1965-85

Capturing the people of Burkina Faso in the first decades of African independence, Sanlé’s portraits are finally winning international recognition.

Never heard of Sory Sanlé? If so you’re not alone – in fact he was aged 74 and living in obscurity when French record producer and writer Florent Mazzoleni came across him while researching popular West African music. Fascinated by his album covers, Mazzoleni arranged to meet him at his studio – only to find him burning his negatives.
