    Newly discovered photographs by Rachidi Bissiriou, studio photographer at Super Picture, working in the town of Ketou, Benin taken from 1968 to 1985.


    "After learning I opened a studio that I fitted on my own. The device with which I worked was a Yashica. My studio was called" Super Picture ", it was located in the neighborhood and Oguidigbo consisted of one room shooting and a darkroom. I remember that, in time, before taking a pose had to put something like a hat for protection from the sun to get a good image"
