Fanny Latour-Lambert spent three days in the hypnotizing city of Dakar, Senegal, street casting the vibrant characters featured in her latest story for GQ Style with fashion director Mobolaji Dawodu. They both touched down in Senegal on the final day of Ramadan with several suitcases of clothes and some camera gear. The plan? To meet and shoot a few dozen Dakarites who exude a natural cool, whether they're wearing traditionally patterned boubous or a floral Off-White suit. The story celebrated the culture of Dakar and the best bold designs of the season.
Born in Paris, Fanny learned drawing and painting at an early age, entering her teen years, with a requisite dose of rebellion; she dropped the pencil for a while. When Fanny turned 15, she decided to rediscover her artistic ability but was quickly frustrated by the lack of spontaneity and capacity to capture an instant that drawing fulfilled. It is this that pushed her to photography and at this time that she began her career as a photographer.
Since first picking up the camera, Fanny has worked with several international magazines such as W, Wall Street Journal, ID, M Le Monde, GQ, Dior Magazine and has worked commercially with Louis Vuitton, Lacoste, Sonia Rykiel, Chloé, Moncler, Soeur, Zara and Nike.
