feature: through the lens of senegalese photographer, omar victor diop

October 14, 2014

With a body of work that includes Fine Arts and Fashion Photography, Senegalese artist Omar Victor Diop continues to capture the diversity of modern Africa; and to much acclaim. After the success of his first project ‘Fashion 2112, le Futur du Beau’ which was featured at the Pan African Exhibition of the African Biennale of Photography of 2011, Diop ended his career in Corporate Communications and decided to fully dedicate himself to photography. Explore his work below (the first images are self portraits).
Omar Victor Diop’s newest project, Diaspora, will be unveiled in London during the 1:54 African Contemporary Art Fair (October 14-19), and then at Paris Photo 2014 in November.
