Food And Culture Festival 2017

Monday, September 25, 2017

Hi Everyone, how's it going?
Today was the Food & Culture Festival (If you're following our Instagram you'll probably have seen it in our feed or on our story). It's safe to say it was lit (pun intended). 
The Food and Culture Festival is an event by Rewahutt that is Food centric but emobodies other tourism and cultural elements as well pretty mush. We decided to take a couple photographs of what went down, some of our favorite highlights and my perosonal favorite fine girls 
(please check out our instagram @ordinaryandart incase you know my WCW's handle because 
i'm definitley putting her photograph up there. Help my life please). 

Young Kulture 5

Tuesday, August 29, 2017
Young Kulture is an experience that goes beyond just music, it's rooted around ideas. Like Jamal fondly says "This all started with a simple idea and a conversation between like minds."
The concert organized by D-Truce and Jamal Swiss returned for its fifth installment where it all started at Bobogiri House, Ikoyi Lagos. With the build up and a teriffic line up of performers it's safe to say the show was another successful one. 
As stated earlier it goes beyond music, there's an exhibition of various skills, products and talents. Like the limited edition "For The Kulture" hat collaboration with the Ordinary Guys, the mini Art exhibition and my personal favorites the light setup by 512Activity which made the entire experience something else entirely. The green light acted as a large gel for me, giving off  a grungy moody feel in the images. 
We made sure to capture as much as possible from Young Kulture 5, to enable those who were there to relive some of the surreal moments, for those who missed out to go through vicariously and have a taste of the experience. 

AKE by Selcouth

Thursday, August 10, 2017

I was pretty intruiged when I recieved a mail not too long ago about a new collection. 
I was particularly interested in the urban direction taken to convey a tradition message and the exhibition of patrimony. 
Selcouth have released the first pieces from the Aké collection. The collection has deep roots as it represents the creative directors (Royan) connection to his hometown of Abeokuta.
To him Aké represents the power, relationships, art, architecture, literature of Egba and he tries to incorporate all these parts into the pieces.

The African Gentleman

Wednesday, July 5, 2017

Hey guys! Hope y'all have been good? Recently I got to do a shoot for the fashion company called SG wears. When I got to see the outfits from SG wears they looked like an African gentleman look, giving you this class. They make traditional wears, waistcoats and also makes Ankara ties..that looks mad btw. You could check out their IG page @SGWEARS to see more of the nice clothing they make. 

Henri Uduku Launch

Wednesday, June 14, 2017

Hi everyone! How's it going?
This past sunday was the launch of Henri Uduku and SS18 Presentation.
The collection consisted of  Shirts, Shorts, Pants and Scarfs.
He worked with very cool and neutral colour schemes on the outfits.
I particularly loved how simple the outfits were, especially the first ensemble.
Also, the footwear caught my eye.
I found out they're by Maliko (maliko_ng on Instagram, they make really nice stuff).
I took the scenes photographs of the look book shot by Esosa (sosa.yande)
 and pictures from the presentation of the collection.

Filled Day

Friday, May 26, 2017
Hi you, how's it going?
I'm going to start by saying though a creative block is the worst, it tends to deter you from trying a lot of things and creates a lot of doubts. That being said the solution is doing something.
I'm personally very enthusiastic about things from the past, I particularly enjoy and get excited about music, fashion and cars from the yesteryears. Well, I've actually been longing to create more retro-inspired images (we've done that previously, you can check them out here and here). So I was glad when my friend Gabriel(@mrr_gabriel on Instagram) and I were able to collaborate on this. It happened in the most random way to be honest, I just saw the fuel dispenser and suggested shooting with it and thats pretty much how we ended up shooting this. 
In my mind I went back in time and landed in the middle of nowhere. I decided to go north east, continued walking till I ended up at a fuelling station. I don't know if it was the heat but apparently the lady at the fuel dispenser was luring me, I tried to snap out of it but couldn't and ended up approaching her. After much persuation she ended up agreeing to go out with me.
