Samuel Fosso was born in Cameroon in 1962, Fosso spent his early childhood in Nigeria, but in 1970, due to the Biafra war, he was forced to flee to Bangui, the capital of the Central African Republic. Fosso started his career as a portrait photographer at the age of thirteen, using leftover film to shoot a series of self-portraits. He has since achieved international renown with his carefully staged, highly original self-portraits. Fosso's work is reflective and ironic.
