Signed, titled, dated and numbered (edition of 10) on mount verso.
Albert pulled this 21-year-old woman out of a crowd at a festival in the Benin countryside and took this portrait in a makeshift outdoor studio, with a piece of canvas thrown over a pole. The photograph is one of hundreds Albert shot during his one-month stay in Benin for a personal project that was featured at the Deichtorhallen Museum in Hamburg, Germany.
