is a French artist. After Delphine Diallo graduated from Académie Charpentier School of Visual Art in Paris in 1999, she worked in the music industry for seven years. Disillusioned by a world driven by mass consumption, she left her work environment and found refuge in Saint-Louis, Senegal, the hometown of her father. She discovered her extended family and started portraying them in her photographs. Delphine then created the Magic photo studio, which pays homage to Malick Sidibé’s photo studio. Delphine adds collages, drawings and colors to her photographs to underline the emotions of her subjects and tell the whole story.
In 2012, Smithsonian named Delphine Diallo one of Photography’s Emerging Stars. In 2013, Delphine Diallo named one of PDN’S 30: New and Emerging Photographers to Watch.
