Autoportraits, Samuel Fosso’s self-portrait as an African chief, 14 Febuary 2004
Samuel Fosso (b. Kunmba, Cameroon, 1962) opened his own photography studio, out of boredom, when he was only thirteen years old. Between 1975 and 1980, Fosso took a series of self-portraits to take up extra film leftover from the day’s work. He experimented with different backdrops, costumes and props. Eventually, the portraits would win him acclaim in the art world. His work has been shown in major international venues such as the Photographers’ Gallery in London and the Guggenheim Museum in New York. He now lives and works in Bangui, Central African Republic.
