Born in 1993 in Senegal, the photographer Aïssatou Ciss... lives and works between the island of Gorée and Dakar (Senegal). After studying law, she was introduced to photography on film sets. She discovered art photography through the International Contemporary Art Meetings organized by LES ATELIERS SAHM, in Brazzaville.
The themes of identity, transmission and resilience are central to her work. She likes to focus on her native land and does not hesitate to invite the viewer to slow down and contemplate everyday life. Her photos are based on her reality. She carries the values that her parents transmitted her, the nostalgia of her childhood, the resilience that she needed to develop and that she uses every day to create.
