Omar Victor Diop
Omar Victor Diop lives in Dakar, Senegal. He works primarily in art and fashion photography. Some of his works also combine photography with other art forms such as costume design, styling and creative writing in order to form a “Gesamtkunstwerk”. Photography is his chosen medium for capturing the diversity of modern African society and its various lifestyles. In the series “Studio des vanités”, Omar Diop portrays friends and colleagues from Dakar in a revival of the tradition of studio photography that once flourished in western Africa.
Alice Mann is a South African photographic artist known for her intimate portrait essays. Her award-winning series "Drummies", was selected as the winner of the LensCulture Award for Young Photographers (2018). Mann's work is regularly represented at international exhibitions and in leading magazines, such as the New Yorker or the British Vogue.

New African photography
“Origin shapes our view” was the title of a contribution to the radio program New African Photography broadcast by Deutschlandfunk in February of this year. From a non-African perspective, African photography has always been dominated by landscape, travel, animal and ethnological subjects.
