…affecting public consciousness through art
I am a Nigerian fine art photographer with a focus on social impact. For the last year I have been exploring the ways art, and photography, in particular, can be a tool for affecting public consciousness and creating change in our world. I have contributed to the conversation on depression and mental health challenges in Africa by developing a group exhibition featuring the works and voices of over 100 African artists, writers and photographers. I also am shining a light on the negative impacts of our society’s unnatural, photoshopped and unachievable standards of beauty through a digital showcase of unretouched photographs of beautiful men and women and the stories of their struggles with self-acceptance.
I have also spent the last four years creatively telling the stories of some of Nigeria’s largest companies through photography and I enjoy capturing the excitement at concerts.
