    Unique 30cm x 30cm digital print on satin paper 280 gram

    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"
