Obituary: Mariem Hassan - photographs at Africa Oye 2011

Published on Wed Sep 23, 2015 by

Sad to hear one of my favourite artists has passed away. Mariem Hassan, the so called ‘Voice of the Sahara’, died of bone cancer aged 57 on 22nd August 2015 in Algeria. I was lucky enough to hear and photograph Mariem when she appeared at Africa Oye in Liverpool, back in 2011. Beautiful music and an inspiring life story. 

Some of my favourite images below. Please contact me directly if you would like to use / licence the photographs.

"I have employed David for conferences, presentations, social engagements, marketing materials, open days, portrait shots, official document signings amongst many others. David has always been amenable to our sometimes short notice and has delivered our photos in a quick time frame as agreed and sometimes much quicker depending on our needs. He has always been very helpful, he follows and delivers on the brief and is able to give additional value to jobs with minimal briefs. I am more than happy to recommend David and he will no doubt deliver the same quality he provides us."
