#LimitlessAfricans - Book Out Oct 11, 2019

When I was 18 years old, during a trip to Nigeria for Christmas, I was put through a series of exorcisms to “drive the gay devil out of me”. This experience would change my life forever. I spiraled into depression and anxiety in the months that followed, and by chance, six months later I got a camera. Photography would quickly become my voice at a moment when I felt completely voiceless.

Photography gave me the power to imagine new worlds and realities where I could just - be - and to create universes and dream-scapes where marginalized people are free and complete individuals.

After college I began work on #LimitlessAfricans, and returned to the core of my experience as an LGBTQ African person that had initiated my passion for the photographic medium. Over the course of 6 years, I would photograph and interview over 50 LGBTQ African immigrants, refugees and asylum seekers in 10 countries across North America, the Caribbean and Europe - working through imagery and text to try and debunk the myth that it is “un-African” to be LGBTQ. To create worlds and images where we are accepted and free.

It has been a difficult but incredibly healing few years and now, 10 years after picking up a camera, I have my first book of photography ‘Limitless Africans’, releasing on Oct 11, 2019 - National Coming Out Day.

I am so grateful to all of you for your support navigating this artistic and incredibly personal journey for me over the last few years! Thank you, it really means the world to me and I’m excited for you all to see the book!
