About chemises

Often photographing parties late into the night, Sidibé would then return to his studio to process and print his film so the partygoers could come by and place orders the next day. The small proof prints were mounted onto colored folders called chemises, and each one was grouped according to the club or event. Presented here in their original album format, these chemises include Sidibé's own hand-written annotations and make up a significant part of the artist's oeuvre. They bear witness to the pervasive sense of freedom and identity among the youth and trace the rapid social, cultural and political transformation in postcolonial Mali.
