Born in Abidjan, Côte d´Ivoire, Aïcha Fall lived her childhood there before leaving for France for her studies. Over time, Aïcha learned to create a link between her identity, her culture and her traditions, through Art.
Aïcha is a storyteller and she uses photography to write and tell her stories. Full of life, of movements whether spontaneous or composed, the scenes she captures are always talkative and original. Bursting with creativity, she diverts elements that surround her to transform them into works of art. Do big things with little that’s her cup of tea. For exemple she using a mobile phone to create her images.
She is a visionary and above all an African woman. And for her the best way to combine her vision and her identity was to go back home.
And through this journey she finally achieves the mission that had been intended for her all this time. The responsibility to represent her African culture, her continent, her heritage, and her community.
A graduate in African language and studies, Aicha is among these new creatives who perpetuate the idea that Art is an integral part of our souls and our lives. She is one of those African women of the new millennium: talented, open-minded and daring.
