NOV. 5–DEC. 23 | Jackson Fine Art presents an exciting joint exhibit with Sanlé Sory’s Volta Photo and Saïdou Dicko’s The Shadowed People. Both from West Africa, each artist’s photos give viewers a glimpse into the streets of Burkina Faso—both from the past and in the present. Sory’s photographs highlight the fashion and nightlife in and around Bobo-Dioulasso, where he still lives, during the 1960s-1980s, while Dicko photographs vibrant portraits, hand-painting the figures black to obscure their identities. jacksonfineart.com
