I came across Kent’s images some time ago and was drawn particularly to his capture of black bodies, often minimal but yet beautifully highlighting dark hues.

Meet Your Photographer: Diane Audrey Ngako

Meet Your Photographer, a short series that will be introducing you to the contributing photographers of yagazieemezi.com over the next couple of weeks. You will be seeing their work on here fairly often so this is an excellent way for you to get familiar with these talented folks. 

I am Diane Audrey Ngako, a Parisian girl of 22 years, born and raised in Cameroon. I’m editor-in-chief of Roots Magazine, a French print publication and a regular contributor to Studio Africa. I balance that with my work as a media consultant for brands and companies that market to the African diaspora in France. I love taking portraits because portraits don’t lie! You always have an emotion. I spent 2 years just staring at different photographs from all over until one day I said to myself, "Wake up and do your own".

Marc Riboud born in 1923 in Lyon, took his first pictures in 1937 using a small vest-pocket camera gifted to him by his father.  Although having started off studying engineering and working in a factory, Riboud picked up his passion for photography once again which took him from the Middle-East, to India, to China before he started to follow the independence movement in Algeria and Western Africa. The location and time period of the above images are noted in the captions. 

"Rather than a profession, photography has always been a passion for me. A passion closer to an obsession."
