In 1944, Kouyaté went to Bamako to look for a job. He entered the Photo Hall Soudanais, the first photographic studio in Mali, and subsequently founded the Photo Hall Kati, near Bamako. In 1964, he went to Ouagadougou and opened the Photo Hall Voltaïque before returning to Mali four years later, to the city of Ségou. Throughout his career, Kouyaté captured the atmosphere of Malian society shortly after independence.
