Mouhamadou Sow

Télé Bi

Mouhamadou Sow focuses on reshaping Western misrepresentations of people and places on the African continent.
In his series Télé bi,Sow documents street life in Dakar,yet uses the simple gesture of framing his scenes through the plastic border of a television screen. Sow negates the documentary tradition by suggesting that these images are destined for media subversion, and he references the photographic act and the photographer’s presence in the process of creating stereotypical representations of Africa.
