i3 Photo Lecture: Malike Sidibe

Oct 26, 2021; 7:00 - 8:30pm
This photo taken of a Black Lives Matter protest is in the middle of a city street, with a confrontation between civilians and police officers. The main subject is an African-American man being tugged by his arm and leg on all sides.

Malike Sidibe, from the series “Black Lives Matter.”

Malike Sidibe is a Brooklyn-based, West African photographer specializing in fashion, portraiture and documentary photography. He tends to take a dream-like approach when it comes to image-making. From photographing covers for The New York Times Magazine to having his work included in Time’s Top 10 Images of 2020, Sidibe has been able to develop his own unique style. Sidibe’s work is a reflection of his creative nature, and his inspiration is drawn by the people he meets and the places he has lived. He is a high-energy creative photographer producing innovative portraits and images full of spirit and color.

The i3: Images, Ideas, Inspiration lecture series features leading photographers and artists, hardware and software developers, and industry experts. This fall, the lecture series is celebrating its 10-year anniversary with the department's founding Chair Katrin Eismann returning as guest curator and host. Presented by MPS Digital Photography.
