Club Ivoire is a collection of photographs of Ivorian nightclub facades, taken in 2023 in the regions of Abidjan and Yamoussoukro. These places are shown here in a neutral way, in daylight, without the luminous artifices specific to their nocturnal activity, providing a singular look at Ivorian club culture and its urban landscapes. The project comprises several hundred images, and follows on from identical projects previously carried out on the fronts of festive venues in France, Spain and the USA.
