Artists' portrait... Zoom on Aldi Diasse

I met Cheikh Aliou Abitalib Diasse, nicknamed Aldi, during the afropunk festival last summer. I already knew and appreciated his work, specially the brightness and intensity that emerge from his photos. This Senegales entrepreneur and artistic director is very present on social networks. He is also passionate about photography. He’s one of the young well known visual artists.
