As a photographer, I record and play with the relationship objects and people have with each other and with one another.
Since 2017, I have been working on two long-term documentary photography projects that explore Christianity in South-East Nigeria, and how international students in London find belonging. I run Studio Styles, an exploration of historical and contemporary material culture in Southern Nigeria. Its pilot project is currently documenting the built environment in Enugu.
You can (pre-)order my first ever hard-copy title here: ‘Sunrise Flour Mill’, Another Place Press.
It makes a Nigerian metaphor out of the flour mill which went defunct after only two years of production, and now lives as an echo of its potential.
