Malick Sidibe, Vues de dos

This picture is called Vues de dos by Malick Sidibe. I really enjoyed this picture because it was so unique and different. I love how the artist chose to portray the people he drew as only their back sides. Normally the person is portrayed by their front features and that is why it is so unique. This technique was meant to represent the Muslim traditions that "discourages images of the self" . The picture portrays the patterns and shades of the African culture which makes this very ethnically friendly. This picture lets people internationally appreciate his work and how people are portrayed in different parts of the world.
