I would like to share this work I was blessed to be part of.
You can see the whole project here:
The photo on the left caused quite a bit of controversy within the Nigerian community a few years ago. It features the country’s president, #GoodluckJonathan, and his friends when they were young. At one time, President Jonathan claimed his parents were so poor during his early days they couldn’t afford to buy him shoes. When this photo surfaced, people criticized him because he was indeed wearing shoes (it is believed he is the gentleman on the left). We decided to have our models pose with no shoes as a nod to Jonathan’s tale of his impoverished youth
— with Kunle Ayodeji. He was the photographer.
