In the 1960s, these two photographers became famous across Africa for their portraiture – not reaching global recognition until the 1990s. Both photographers commonly shot family portraits and individuals who were not professional models. 

Brigette: Dress MARGOT MOLYNEUX, hat CRYSTAL BIRCH, earring PICHULIK and robe ROBE LIVES

Subjects would come ready to shoot wearing their favourite clothes and often cherished items to be photographed with, in what was often the only photograph they would ever see of themselves. It was a special, proud moment for everyone you see in their works.
