In Bordeaux : Exhibition ''Bobo Yéyé'' by Sory Sanlé


From July 27th to 30th, L'Ascenseur Végétal will present a selection of photobooks at the "Ateliers de Couthures" international festival of journalism. It takes place in a relaxed atmosphere in a beautiful village called Couthures-sur-Garonne, 1h-drive from Bordeaux on the road to Toulouse. We are looking forward to see many of you there :-)

PLEASE NOTE : Due to our presence in Couthures, dispatching of orders will be interrupted for a few days. The last orders will ship on July 24th, and then resume on August 1st.


Until August 26th, we are presenting an exhibition by Burkinabé photographer Sory Sanlé called "Bobo Yéyé / Studio Volta Photo".

In his studio "Volta Photo" in Bobo-Dioulasso and in villages around the city where he made street portraits, reporter work, and cover images for LPs, Sory Sanlé documented - between 1965 and 1985 - the fast evolution of his own city, Bobo-Dioulasso, then Haute-Volta’s cultural and economic capital. He captured the frontal collision between modern life and centuries-old traditions from this culturally rich and mostly rural region.

PLEASE NOTE : Despite our presence in Couthures for the festival, our Bookshop / Gallery in Bordeaux will remain open with the usual hours (Tue - Sat / 11AM - 7PM) thanks to Pierrick who will be there for you ! Thank you Pierrick ;-)


Back from the "Rencontres d'Arles" festival where we met lots of publishers & self-published artists, we brought back many new books & rarities, mostly signed copies ! We are doing our best to add these books to our online listing quickly, but please feel free to contact us if you do not see the book you are looking for... we might have it even if not listed yet :-)

Online or in the Bordeaux bookshop, see you very soon !
