Omar Victor Diop’s photographic practice is a fresh mash up of styles and art historical moments, drawing as much from Cindy Sherman’s self-portraits or Malian photographer Malick Sidibé’s sensitive and exquisite gathering of pattern and form as he draws from the gloss and perfection of menswear couture. Diop’s exacting eye means that every detail in his photographs is stylized and striking, clear and exuberant.
