On Creative Boom: Sory Sanlé’s vintage portraits of Burkina Faso’s people in newly independent West Africa

Sory Sanlé: Volta Photo 1965-85 is a fascinating collection of black and white photographic work by Sory Sanlé, an eminent portrait photographer from Burkina Faso, the landlocked country in West Africa formerly colonised by the French, then known as Republique de Haute-Volta. I love the square format and the loving sense of humor in these photographs.
