Omar Victor Diop developed an interest in photography at an early age. As a child, he was nurtured by masterpieces of Afro-Caribbean literature, and by characters such as “Segou” by author Maryse Condé, who go from being a “foreigner” to a “notable” in a given society. Omar Victor Diop sees this journey as representative of his own, a journey in which he found himself on the side of minorities who must look to models of adaptation to different contexts and new ways of being.

Omar Victor Diop is distinguished by a work that combines visual arts, fashion and photographic portraiture. He is particularly fond of mixing photography with other art forms, including textile design, fashion design and creative writing to bring his inspiration to life For him, art is the only dialogue that will never cease, a dialogue that is constantly inspired by those who redefine and choose their future life, convinced that it is the only way to get out of the ordinary and leave a real mark on people.

Omar Victor Diop’s work connects the history and modernity of African societies, whether by sublimating their lifestyles or by coloring their self-image: “It has been exactly ten years since I picked up a camera with the intention of showing the struggle of my people, their moments of pride, their altruism, their incredible diversity and their capacity to adapt.”
