Hamadou Frédéric Baldé’s work is rooted in his multicultural background. Born from a French-Vietnamese mother and a Nomad Fulani father, he brings his diversity and thoughtful exploration of lineage to each image he creates. Through sensuality and movement, he offers an in-depth analysis of humanity and interconnectedness.
His conceptual outlook merges easily with high-profile commercial work: with Ali Mahershala, winner of the 2017 Oscar for Best Actor in a Supporting Role in Moonlight, for a fashion commercial, and most recently with Beyoncé and Jay Z as Behind-The-Scenes videographer on their OTR II European tour.
Hamadou Frédéric Baldé splits his time between Paris and New York, where he puts his distinctive vision in service to brands and artists alike.
