Biography of Samuel FOSSO

Cameroon > Arts : Samuel FOSSO

Biography :

Samuel Fosso is a Cameroonian photographer.

Samuel Fosso was born in Cameroon in 1962.
Samuel Fosso is one of the most renowned and prodigious young African photographers. His fantastical portraits of different types of people - from African Chiefs to American women - are revealed, upon closer inspection, to be self-portraits. A witty and ironic exploration of self-identity, Fosso’s work has been shown in major global venues such as the Photographers’ Gallery in London and the Guggenheim Museum in New York.

Platform for Art displayed three works by Samuel Fosso at Gloucester Road Underground Station. They were displayed, billboard scale, on the disused District and Circle line platform until 13th June, 2005.
