About Samuel Fosso

View Profile »

At the age of 13, photographer Samuel Fosso (Cameroonian, b.1962) set up his first photographic studio in Bangui in the Central African Republic, taking glamour portraits of wealthy clients. Fosso first started shooting self-portraits as both a way to use up spare film and to keep his grandmother up to date with his life. Using a Hasselblad and an autotimer, the elaborately costumed self-portraits quickly became a way to document his personal development and history. In 1994, Fosso was discovered by French photographer Bernard Deschamps, propelling him to international fame.
