We've chosen this week's book in honor of our wedding clients Lesley and Paul who set off on their South African sojourn this week... they left their corporate jobs to become safari guides! We can't wait to hear about their adventures - hopefully we'll visit there someday soon!
Seydou Keita started his photographic career when he was given a camera in 1945. He made beautiful portraits of the people around him - many of his subjects are his own friends and family members. We like his work because of the glimpse it gives us of life in Africa in the 50s, 60s, and 70s, and because of Keita's sensitive yet objective portrayal of his subjects.
