Weitere Informationen:
"Born in Port Harcourt, 1992. I studied art at the University of Benin with a major in painting. I started taking photographs in 2010. I try to look beyond a literal interpretation of the images that I make, to a more conceptual understanding of the photographs. Taking a spontaneous approach to my work even as a constructionist, I endeavour to make my images in the creative moment by making each of my pieces an experiment. The pictures I make are reflections of me as they are the product of my understanding of and reaction to the environment in which I am working. I am willing to convert my immediate environment to my studio, manipulating the elements freely but cautiously to confront the viewer in a visual debate that many might not be too willing to engage. My 'subjects' are seen as a team in the creative process and I often share the images with them so as to give a visual feedback to the participants in what is in effect a performance before my camera.
My photos are taken on raw platforms, as a way of being honest to myself. I am a member of Photo Garage Lagos."
