Malick Sidibé’s amazing photographs of Mali

Brilliant Malick Sidibé photos in today’s Guardian, along with an interesting feature on how Mali embraced rock ‘n’ roll music and French fashion following its liberation in 1960. All of the clothes featured are fantastic as is the swagger of everyone wearing them. I love how Malick talks about socks being such a big deal… fascinating, you just don’t get that excitement about clothes these days do you? Not just socks, the whole lot. Pride, glee, experimentation… aw boy. Anyway, you can read the feature online if you’re not a Guardian reader and, excitingly, you can see an exhibition of Malick’s work at the Lichfield Studios in London from 11 March-16 April.
