B&A Photographer Malike Sidibe recently spent ten days with R&B legend Usher on the assignment of a lifetime.
Malike traveled with Usher from his home in Los Angeles to his residency stage in Las Vegas, capturing intimate moments of the artist with his family and team along the way. Malike’s favorite moments were spent with Usher and his family, and resulted in some touching images of Usher’s son taking his first steps.
Malike has a special talent for connecting with his subjects in their personal spaces without stepping on their toes. For this assignment, he also had to be swift with his camera while shooting in rapidly changing lighting conditions during rehearsals and performances.
