Rachidi Bissiriou

Rachidi Bissiriou was born in 1950 and lives in the village of Kétou, in central Benin. His Studio Pleasure opened in 1968 and he spent the next three decades using his Yashica twin-lens camera to photograph the locals.

Now retired, Bissiriou’s portraits are shown for the first in the Tête-à-Têtes exhibition at David Hill Gallery in 2020.
