Ananias Léki Dago’s portrait of the late Ivorian photographer Paul Kodjo. This intergenerational dialogue becomes a reflection on communication and the dissemination of the work of art.
Dago inherits a trunk that contains the work of a lifetime, that of Paul Kodjo, the most significant photographer of the time of the newly independent Côte d'Ivoire. It is the beginning of an exciting story that will link the lives of these two people who have in common not only a love for photography but also the fragility of an artist's life. Je reste photographe follows Ananias through his encounters and his travels as he throws himself body and soul into a long work of research, reconditioning and conservation of the negatives of Paul Kodjo and thus lifts the veil on the tumultuous journey of this last.
Following the screening, a conversation will take between Autograph's director Mark Sealy, photographer Eileen Perrier and the film’s director, Ananias Léki Dago.
Tickets for this event are booked through, and managed by, the Barbican.

Autograph is a place to see things differently. Since 1988, we have championed photography that explores issues of race, identity, representation, human rights and social justice, sharing how photographs reflect lived experiences and shape our understanding of ourselves and others.Donate Join our mailing list
