Ibrahima mbengue 

Ibrahima est originaire de Dakar-Plateau, dans le centre-ville de la capitale sénégalaise. Son enfance a donc été marquée par un environnement bien particulier, ce qui a une incidence sur son travail.

A ces aspects, s'ajoute l'influence de ses grands-frères passionnés de photographie, ou déjà dans le métier.

Au tout début, son activité se limitait aux reportages mondains, aux cérémonies: mariages, baptêmes et d'autres circonstances festives... Cela a aiguisé son regard, sa vision.

Puis, presque naturellement, il s'est orienté vers cet "objet" qu'est l'image, par les médiums que sont la photographie et le cinéma.

Il compte poursuivre dans cette voie pendant longtemps.



Ibrahima comes from Dakar-Plateau, the centre of the capital of Senegal. His childhood was marked by this unique environment and is reflected in his work.

His city is a hige influence in his photographs, so is his family and especially his brothers who are passionate about photography or already working as photographers.

At the beginning of his careed, he worked as a mundane reporter for all kinds of events: weddings, baptisms etc... It allowed it to find his "eye" and artistic vision.

He naturally turned toward the object which is the "image", through photography and cinema. 

He is looking forward continuing his photographic journey.
