Bouna Medoune Seye was born in Dakar in 1956 and died on the 27the of December 2017.

He studied in France, Marseilles, and then went back to Dakar where, with Djibril Sy, Moussa Mbaye and Boubacar Touré, he tries to express an artistic African photography. In the 80's, his first exhibitions showed the strong personality of his work. He did numerous reportages trying to show the urban reality of his country : a certain idea of modernity. In 1993, he realised an exhibition/installation of photographs on Canadian-Indians, at the Chambre Blanche Gallery in Quebec. He directed in 1994 his first short film, "Bandits Cinéma", and moves to film activities.
