During the last half of the 20th century, photographic portraiture underwent impressive expansion in West Africa. The advent of independence that swept the continent in the 1950s and 1960s provided a sense of pride expressed in fashion, music and all aspects of social life that leaked into photographers’ studios. In most coastal cities photographers played a significant role in creating an archive of these developments, making the movements immortal.
