Artistic Minds by Khadija Saye
Khadija Mohammadou Saye (30 July 1992 – 14 June 2017), also known as Ya-Haddy Sisi Saye, was a Gambian-British photographer. Her photography explored her Gambian-British identity and was exhibited in the Diaspora Pavilion at the Venice Biennale in 2017. Saye died in the Grenfell Tower fire.
Saye was a photographer whose work explored themes of home, ritual, and spirituality. In the past she has photographed series based around black hair, and a raucous night at the infamous, now-closed London cabaret bar Madame Jojo's.
Her latest work, Dwelling: in this space we breathe, is described by Saye's website as "a series of wet plate collodion tintypes that explores the migration of traditional Gambian spiritual practices and the deep rooted urge to find solace within a higher power."
