Saïdou Dicko is a self-taught multimedia visual artist from Burkina Faso who engages in photography, videography, installation, and paintings. Coming from a background of a Fulani shepherd, he began his artistic pursuit from drawing shadows of his sheep. Later on in his career, those shadows became his focus and present in all of his work.

Being a reflection of his years of work, “The Shadowed People” aims to anonimise the subjects and subsequently break down the concept of the individual, democratizing his characters by removing key societal indicators.
