Etoundi Essamba

Douala, Cameroun


Angèle Etoundi Essamba is an artist engaged in a reflection on the identity of the African woman. For nearly thirty years, she has observed the world through the women she photographs. Her images are imprinted with the absolute will to know and understand. Her vision is at the same time aesthetic, idealistic, realistic and societal. She joins the spirit of humanist photography with a strong attachment to the values of communion.


The black woman constitutes the central element of her artistic expression. She aesthetically captures a vision of women and African culture by giving a new interpretation of contemporary Africa. Her work with stereotypical representations of women gives her subjects meaning and grandeur. Three key words define Angèle Etoundi Essamba's work: pride, strength and self-awareness.
