Adaeze Okaro - '1' WIA
Adaeze Okaroh is gecureerd door: Suzanne Tromp, Senior Art en Fotografie Editor WeTransfer.
Born and raised in Enugu state, Nigeria, Obiageli Adaeze Okaro (she/her) is a self-taught photographer. She centers her work around portraiture, fine art, documentary imagery, and fashion photography in the Anambra state of Nigeria, where she lives.
Obiageli’s work features Black women and men in colorful, lucid portraits that are deeply infused with cultural traces of her origins. Inspired by family photo albums and images of her mother, father, and brothers, Obiageli also incorporates aesthetics from Nigeria’s booming movie industry, Nollywood. Her commission for Artist Development Fund will reflect around the Celebration of Self, Joyful Rhythm, and Beliefs & Rituals creative briefs, and feature subjects in their homes or personal spaces in Nigeria to express a sense of belonging.
With her work for companies like Dove, Getty Images, Girlgaze, VSCO, Adobe and more, Obiageli’s work continues to showcase the beauty of Black women while aiming to dismantle barriers and stereotypes surrounding Black women, one photograph at a time.
