When speaking about some of Africa’s most iconic photographers, the name Jacques Touselle is rarely, if ever, mentioned. Touselle, whose career spans over photo years, established his own photo studio, Studio Photo Jacques, in the 1970s in Mbouda, Cameroon where, like many other photographers at the time, he photographed everyday people - from children and families, to elders, friends and couples. 

The photos above are portraits taken by Touselle in his studio in the 1970s-1980s.

Among the finest gold ornaments of the Sahel are the Peul (Fulani, Fulbe) earrings worn in the Mopti, Jenne and Macina regions of Mali. Twisted gold earrings are hammered into a four-lobed shape, often embellished with engraved designs.

Unfortunately, I couldn’t find any higher resolution copies of these images by the late Sudanese photographer Al Rashid Mahdi who, born in 1923, passed away in 2008. However, that didn’t stop me from wanting to share these vintage portraits.

I believe the bottom photograph is a hand-tipped image of Mahdi, a pretty handsome man, if I may so.

Portraits taken by Togolese photographer Cornélius Augustt Yao Azaglo.

Unsure of where exactly these were taken but I’m certain that they were taken in West Africa.
