Samule Fosso: Inspiration of the week

Samuel Fosso is one of Africa's most prominent photographers and my inspiration for the week! Mr. Fosso owns a photography studio in the Central African Republic where he started taking self portraits at a young age to send back to his family in Nigeria in the 1970s. These are no ordinary self-portraits though! Fosso brings together kaleidoscopic backdrops and unlikely outfits with his narcissistic and somewhat camp persona which I find really powerful and lighthearted at the same time. Enjoy!
