Dedicated to Volta Photo’s heyday in the 1960’s and 1970’s, this artist’s book tells the story of photographer Sanlé Sory’s fascinating and moving studio images.
In his Bobo-Dioulasso (Burkina Faso) studio, Sory caught the fusion operating between tradition and modern life in the decades which followed his country’s independence.
