Samuel Fosso

Samuel Fosso is one of the most renowned and prodigious young African photographers. His fantastical portraits of different types of people – from African Chiefs to American women – are revealed, upon closer inspection, to be self-portraits. A witty and ironic exploration of self-identity, Fosso’s work has been shown in major global venues such as the Photographers’ Gallery in London and the Guggenheim Museum in New York.

    How far do you have to go with this stuff until you no longer get Cindy Sherman comparisons? And how far away from Sherman’s work until yours is valid too?
