Aïcha Fall
Lives & Works in Paris, France
Aïcha Fall is an Ivorian-French self-taught photographer based between Paris and Abidjan. Her practice blends photojournalism, documentary, and fine art photography to explore femininity and gender in West Africa. Framed by Fall’s study in African Studies at INALCO, Paris, the photographs serve as an archive of West African cultures.

Fall’s photographs emphasise the beauty that emerges when we diverge from applying typical vantage points to common environments and those who inhabit them. Her perspective enunciates the poetics embedded within passing glimpses, glances from afar, and centering the periphery.

Fall is a 2022 Lucie Foundation Emerging Artist finalist and a 2021 recipient of the British Journal of Photography’s 1854 FastTrack Award. Fall was recently commissioned for Apple’s #ShotoniPhone campaign and The Washington’s Post award-winning piece “Africa’s Rising Cities.”

Aïcha Fall will be presented by Kendeja Collective.
