All the photographers whose work is contained in the collection of Alex van Gelder worked in Bénin between the 1960s and the 1980s, among them the photographers represented in the exhibition, such as Benoît Adjovi, Jean Agbétagbo, Joseph Moïse Agbodjélou, Bouraïma Akodji, Léon Ayékoni, Jean Dotonou, Christophe Mahoukpé, Sébastien Méhinto (known as Pigeon), Edouard Méhomé and Camille Tchawlassou. And for many of the people portrayed, the moment of being photographed remained unforgettable because, firstly, it was usually the only time that they could ever afford a portrait and secondly, it was the portrait that would be placed on or beside their deathbed at the final ceremony, because the soul of the deceased appeared to emanate from it once again. These particularly intensive portraits show different people and tribes in Bénin during the transition to the postcolonial era.
