PHOTO SLAM! ARLES 2021

Manifestations
This photo series explores formative cultural experiences from my childhood in Nigeria; encounters with the Egungun masquerade, the collective force of the ancestors that facilitates communication between the living and the dead. The series is a response to my journey into recollection and the exploration of my diasporic identity and cultural heritage.
