……without a jacket 12


This is a series of pictures taken on the eventful Sunday afternoon I spent in Bwari, Abuja when I visited the famous pottery village and lower Usuma Dam. I initially planned on naming this series ‘Life Without a Jacket’ because of how we braved the astonishing body of water at the dam, without the safety of life jackets, in leaky boats, paddled by the most courageous children I have ever encountered. The entire trip, although unplanned, turned out to be one of the most amazing experiences I had in 2017. However, I decided to take out ‘life’ just to enable people to describe whatever it was that made them feel as alive and scared as I felt while on that boat with my loved ones.

The series features black and white photographs of dark faces and bright smiles, the beautiful movement and rhythm of the water slowly dancing with the clouds.
I hope you enjoy the pictures as much as I enjoyed taking them. Please share your comments down below.
