We went to meet African-o-phile and pro-am photographer Stephen Budd who has been shooting portraits for a book to be published in 2015, the proceeds going to an African based children’s charity.
The idea is based on the work of the famous veteran Malian photographer http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malick_S…é who famously used the same backdrop to many of his portraits.
Stephen visited Sidibé’s studio in Bamako, the capital of Mali, and has trans-located his ideas to his own space, for “The Kitchen Portraits”.
Work in progress can be viewed here; http://www.modelmayhem.com/kitchenPor…
Shoots will run throughout 2014/15. Contact https://twitter.com/stephenbudd for details.
