Photographers had fun networking with one another at the just-concluded World photography day celebration that held at Freedom Park, Broad Street. I was privileged to be one of the photographers whose works were exhibited on site.
For those that couldn’t make the monumental event, attached are 2 of the pictures I showcased. The coffin picture was a controversial experiment that got me in trouble a few years back. Critics failed to look beyond the traditional connotations of having a live model pose in a coffin. Some concluded that it was a taboo that will result in the death of the model shortly afterwards. Well, its been over 2 years and the model is still alive. The message I was trying to get across was that eventually every one of us will die. When that day comes, will it be the angel of light (dressed in white) or the angel of darkness (dressed in black) that will be coming for our souls. Most people have an idea which one it will be. The idea was to make us more conscious of life beyond the coffin, sorry, grave. The same model is the one representing all 3 people depicted.
The second picture was culled out of the 4 year experiment I did with my daughter, superstar, supermodel, Anuoluwapopupolopolopo. She was one daughther that always wants to do almost everything that she saw daddy do. If she saw daddy standing up and peeing in the toilet, she would ask for permission to “stand up” and pee in the same manner. Well, though I didn’t grant her the peeing request, I finally agreed to her request to do the laundry. The picture documented her tedious ordeal. The clothes came out sparkling clean also not because it was Ariel detergent she used but because she was determined to let me know that whatever daddy can do, she can do. She’s currently taking orders for those that are interested in having their laundry done. Her manager’s name is Seun Akisanmi and he can be reached at email@example.com or you can just add him to your bb contact list(bb pin: 271e3bc8). Cheers.
