Outtakes from Senegal

December 8 (2022): actress, model and Chanel Ambassador Komatsu Nana was in Dakar, Senegal, to attend the Métiers D’Art show and exhibition for Chanel, a premiere in Africa (see Métiers d’Art in Dakar on this blog). During her short stay there, Vogue Japan organized a photoshoot that was published a few weeks later, on February 1, 2023: Chanel-Dakar-Nana Komatsu.

The photographer in charge of the photo session was visual artist Djibril Dramé aka Gadaay whose agency (Sabali Inc) prepared the session with the Vogue team. I wrote a short interview article of Djibril Dramé for Blog Fascinant Japon, a very popular blog in the French language, dedicated to Japanese culture, art (past and present) and history: Vogue Japon au Sénégal. I’d like to thank Djibril Dramé for his time and generous offer of some HQ pics and outtakes.
