Burkina Faso photographer Sory Sanlé (b. 1943) began his career in 1960, the year his country (then called République de Haute-Volta) gained independence from France. Sanlé opened his Volta Photo portrait studio in 1965 and, working with his Rolleiflex twin lens medium format camera, Volta Photo was soon recognised as the finest studio in the city. Voltaic photography’s unsung golden age is fully embodied by Sory Sanlé. His black and white images magnify this era and display a unique cultural energy and social impact.
