I'm a documentary photographer and historian from Oyo, Nigeria, based out of Lagos State.
My body of works is largely fixated on examining political consciousness within social groups in Africa.
As a visual artist, I am very motivated to keep records. I believe it’s of importance to record daily life and even now and then, the seemingly mundane, not simply for higher awareness and understanding of our times, but for individuals in the future to be able to reflect on who they are and how they got there.
I'm a recipient of the 2019 Eugene Smith Student Grant and I serve as a member of the African Photojournalism Database (APJD) and Diversify Photo. With a prior National Diploma in Mass Communication at the Yaba College of Technology [Nigeria], currently I am concluding a B.A.E degree in History Education at the University Of Lagos [Nigeria].
