So while browsing online we found this incredible blog (Vintage Pulchritude) with freakish nude chicks in awkward positions wearing bizarre masks and props. Of course we’re obsessed in the office… compared to our costumes (angel, zombie cheerleader*, bedbug) these take the cake! Hopefully everyone will have a fun and exciting halloween and please send pics! The best costumes might make our blog ; ) :

Malick Sidibé (born 1935 or 1936) is Malian photographer noted for his black-and-white studies of popular culture in the 1960s in Bamako. He was born in Soloba, Mali and completed his studies in design and jewelry in the École des Artisans Soudanais (now the Institut National des Arts) in Bamako. In 1955, he undertook an apprenticeship at Gérard Guillat-Guignard’s Photo Service Boutique, also known as Gégé la pellicule.
In 1958, he opened his own studio (Studio Malick) in Bamako and specialized in documentary photography, focussing particularly on the youth culture of the Malian capital. In the 1970s, he turned towards the making of studio portraits.
Sidibé was able to increase his reputation through the first meetings on African photography in Mal 1994. His work is now exhibited in Europe (for example, the Fondation Cartier in Paris), the United States and Japan. – bio via African Success
