Aba | Pastiche.

Here's a conglomeration of things that catch my eye,
make me smile and make me frown.

At times I'll grow and sometimes I'll be foolish.
This is a bit of me and a bit of you... and art.

"As unbearable as these photographs may be to look at for long unrelieved stretches, they would be abominable in quite a different way were it not for their ability to suggest that there exist alternatives to what they depict"

Some recent shots taken by Nigerian photographer Lakin Ogunbanwo, one of my favourite contemporary fashion photographers.

There’s always an air of mystery to his images that make them incredibly unique. With the faces of the models hidden in these photos, the objective of making their clothing stand out and feel memorable is done so effortlessly.

Read Dynamic Africa’s exclusive Q&A with Lakin.
