Samuel Fosso (b.1962) is one of Africa's pre-eminent photographers. He began taking self-portraits to send to his mother in Nigeria, when he was made a refugee by the Biafran War. His initial intention was to show he was alive and well, but Fosso soon came to incarnate an inventive range of characters from an African chief to a Japanese marine.
