Malick Sidibé (1936-2016) was a Malian photographer best known for his photographs of popular culture in the 1960s in the capital city of Bamako. His black and white photographs are jubilant, exciting, and profoundly moving. During his lifetime he was awarded the Hasselblad Award for photography, a World Press Photo award, and was both the first photographer and the first African to be given the Golden Lion Award for Lifetime Achievement at the Venice Biennale. Sidibé's work is held in the collections of The Contemporary African Art Collection (CAAC), the J. Paul Getty Museum in LA, and the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

Also contains a foreword by Gunilla Knape, an essay by Manthia Diawara, "The 1960s in Bamako: Malick Sidibé and James Brown", and a transcript of an interview with Sidibé by André Magnin.
