Artists' portrait... Zoom on Ina Thiam, committed photographer

Second portrait from my series dedicated to committed photographers. Let's discover together Ina Thiam's works.


Zoom on... Ina Thiam





Ndeye Fatou Thiam, better known under the name of Ina, is a photographer and director.


Willing to archive the Senegalese hip-hop culture, Ina quickly starts to explore and showcase the urban culture in its whole. This is how she manages a documentation centre focused on hip-hop and urban cultures named "d’Africulturban" : hip-hop, basket, graffitis are all expressions and daily claims that the photographer wishes to highlight.

Through photography, she also addresses the conditions of life of women and children but also the general conditions in the city.


Here is a selection of my favorite artworks from Ina Thiam:





Artistically yours,

Daffa
