Editor’s words When I planned my trip to Bamako, the first thing I wanted to see was the studio of the Malian photographer Malick Sidibé. It represents everything I love about photography. With anything, it tells us stories, takes us through the ages. I am a fan for years of the so-called “eye of Bamako” and its counterpart, the fire Seydou Keita. — Diana-Audrey
