Du Twist à Cocody ou L'art de la Natte Africa in the PhotoBook Diby Yao Christophe Photography

Paris: Dalfoz, 1972 (1972), 59 pagina's

This amazing book begins with 4 pages of text in French and English.

Then the main event: 58 black and white amazing photographs of stunning hair.
The photographer gives a better description of the book than I could ever write:
"Oh, my Black Sisters, why are you trying to forget that you are African? Great poets have sung the glory of your bodies and I, a humble photographer, have caught a few of your marvelous braids and tresses."
