Siaka Soppo Traoré is one to watch. Consistently named one of the most innovative African photographers on the scene right now, Traoré is well-known for his evocative dance photography in projects like SunuStreet and Dame Nature. His recent series of images, « Voyages, Images et Corps » features Senegalese hip hop dancers Cie La Mer Noire and a number of dancers from Cameroon Cie Agathe Djokam, Sn9per Cr3w. The groups met for two weeks in April 2016 in a project within the MAM Gallery to promote the positive spirit of urban youth in Dakar, Senegal and Douala, Cameroon.
