Light Walls House

Located in Toyokawa city, the “Light Walls House” is a wooden house imagined by Japanese studio mA-style architects. White, minimalist and decorated with plants, this building has a structure which allows the light to reflect on the ground and on the walls in order to create patterns thanks to a trick of shadows and rays.

Fatoumata Diabaté: Sutiki, la nuit est à nous”.

Started in Bamako, Mali, in 2004, Fatoumata Diabaté birthed this project out of an idea to capture how young African women express themselves through their choices of contemporary clothing. Diabaté aims to continue this project across several cities both in Africa and around the world.

Born in 1980 in Bamako, Mali, Fatoumata Diabaté received her initial experience at the Promo Femmes audio visual training centre before joining the Photography Training Centre (Centre de formation en photographie – CFP) in Bamako between 2002 and 2004. She continued her education with a one month internship at the vocational learning centre (Centre d enseignement professionnel) in Vevey, Switzerland and has participated in numerous workshops both in Mali and abroad.

She has participated in several group exhibitions (Bamako Encounters 2005, 2009 and 2011; Kornhaus Museum of Bern in Switzerland, etc.) and had several solo exhibitions (Festival of Visages francophones de Cahors, France; the Malians of Montreuil, outside the walls of the quai Branly museum, etc.)

She has reported for World Press Photo, Oxfam, Rolex. In December 2005, she received the Africa in creation prize of the French Association for Artistic Action (AFAA) for her work entitled Tuareg, in gestures and movements. In 2011 she was awarded the Blachère Foundation prize for her work entitled The Animal in Man; the prize was an atelier in Arles and an exhibition at the Blachère Foundation. She is currently developing an art project about soutiki youth (The night is ours).

Test Shots by Rog Walker.

Test Shots is an ongoing series of portraits taken in the studio with photography couple Rog and Bee Walker. Each photograph, taken mostly of their close friends and fellow creatives, is as striking as it is simple.

Opting for a sombre and dark background, coupled with poised and pensive subjects, Walker’s shots manage to maximize on the simplicity of the traditional portrait style by making use of a medium format camera that provides an image quality which, despite the powerful stillness of each individual, vividly brings the details of each photograph to life. This brings out both a sense of strength and vulnerability in each picture, alluding to the intimate two-way dialog between subject and photographer.

"This is the most organic method of communication I have. Photography is the way I speak…It doesn’t get more personal than another human, and that’s what I’m looking to capture, that connection between humanity." - Rog Walker

We don’t need to replace our history with myths to validate ourselves and our cultures. Keep it real.
