Marc Posso is a self-taught photographer from Libreville, Gabon. He is based in Paris, France and he is focused on stories surrounding the African continent through the diversity of its cultures and the identity of its people. 

Marc thinks that the valorization of African heritage is the heart of belonging to this continent. In fact, identity is not based on being black or being « African » but on the way we value our culture and customs. Many people around the world have a fixed idea about Africa. For the most part, Africa rhymes with savage, even for some « Africans ». Marc’s work aims to inspire and celebrate the beauty and diversity of cultures and people from Africa. He uses photography to contribute to change and improve the image people have of Africa.
