Saint-Louis du Sénégal, La Let­tre de la Photographie
juin 2011
On the main street, on the cor­ner, just across from the mar­ket and next to the vet­eri­nar­i­an, the Kodak sign indi­cates Oumar Ly’s Stu­dio. Two large hinged door sec­tions, held on each side by a stone, leav­ing a view into the inside of the stu­dio, a bench and a dis­play cab­i­net where old black and white pho­tographs are pinned. Oumar Ly, pho­tog­ra­ph­er and mas­ter of the house, is there this morn­ing as he pre­pares the tea for his child­hood friends, today retired. Togeth­er, they enjoy the moment chat­ting, before lunchtime will sep­a­rate them. Mis­ter Ly clos­es then the bou­tique to return in direc­tion of the Thioffy neigh­bor­hood, where his house is.
