Omar Victor Diop was born in Dakar in 1980. Since his early days, Diop developed an interest for Photography and Design, essentially as a means to capture the diversity of modern African societies and lifestyles.​
The quick success of his first conceptual project Fashion 2112, le Futur du Beau which was featured at the Pan African Exhibition of the African Biennale of Photography of 2011 in Bamako (Rencontres de Bamako) encouraged him to end his career in Corporate Communications to dedicate his time to photography in 2012.
Diop Lives in Dakar, his body of work includes Fine Arts and Fashion Photography as well as Advertising Photography. He enjoys mixing photography with other forms of art, such as costume design, styling, and creative writing.
For KYOTOGRAPHIE 2020, Diop will display his large-format portraits of people working at the Demachi Masugata Shopping Arcade, as hanging banners, as well as a Diaspora series, a collection of self-portraits in the guise of prominent African expatriates hosted in a different venue.
