Fifty years of the Centre for African Studies

I came home yesterday to find a copy of a booklet celebrating 50 years of Edinburgh University’s Centre for African Studies, and it included my portrait of Sengalese musician Soriba Kanout, performing in Edinburgh in autumn 2011:

He was performing at the end of the 2011 Africa-in-Motion film festival (one day I’ll get around to putting some of those images on this website; I’m way behind with everything on the site just now).

I’d been asked about this photograph quite some time ago, and had almost forgotten that we’d come to an agreement about usage for this publication.  It’s nice to see another of my images in print… 🙂

    I can see why they wanted to use it: both a fine image and one which works very well indeed in the double-page format they’ve chosen!

      Thanks, I do like seeing it in print – of course, I had never printed it myself, so it is very nice to see it printed so well (even if my little iPhone snap here doesn’t do the colour reproduction any favours!).
