Based in Montpellier, photographer Fatoumata Diabaté has made portrait her speciality, immortalising the faces of people who cross her path and catch her eye. In 2019, a residency brought her to Salvador de Bahia to share her skills to Brazilian photographers. She had no idea that this stay would remind her of her Malian roots, particularly through the Yoruba religious traditions. Influenced by this experience, Fatoumata Diabaté received the visit from a goddess in one of her dreams and now plans to transcribe the invisible into photographs. She explains all this to Clémentine Spiler for Les Infusés
