Recently came across this small collection of studio portraits taken by another great Malian portrait photographer. This is my first time stumbling across the work of Kélétigui Touré and have to wonder if other sources that have made mention of the liked of Malick Sidibe and Seydou Keita have never included Kélétigui Touré on their list of Malian studio portrait photographers have done so simply because they too weren’t aware of his work.

All these photographers were taken during the 1940s.
