Sidibe was recently awarded the Venice Biennale Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement (2007)--the first time this award was presented to a photographer--and the Infinity Award for Lifetime Achievement (2008), in recognition of his contribution to documentary photography and the historical record. Malick Sidibe: La Vie en Rose provides a survey of this work, focusing primarily on Sidibes images of Malis buzzing youth culture and family life in Bamako in the 1960s and 70s. Laura Seranis foreword contextualizes Sidibes work in a wider survey of African photography- the book also includes an interview with the photographer by Laura Incardona and an appendix with Sidibes famous chemises (photographic dossiers), which documents his working methods.
