You’ve only got a few days left to check out this exhibition of images by the late photographer Seydou Keïta being showcased at the Leila Heller Gallery in Alserkal Avenue. The exhibition is a series of black and white portraits taken in his home country of Mali, between 1948 and 1960, and show a turbulent time in Mali’s history. Keïta only became internationally recognised after his archive of thousands of photographs was unearthed in the ’90s, and since then, he has been called one of the greatest portrait photographers of all time. The exhibition is only on until September 1, so head down as soon as you can. Free. Until September 1, 10am to 7pm.
