Eloghosa Osunde, The Writer & Photographer Skillfully Exploring Human Relationships
Eloghosa Osunde is a profound writer and photographer whose work documents and explores grief, trauma, loss and love in human relationships.
Osunde's most striking work is definitely her 2016 photo series, Obalende: The King Pursued Us Here – a six-part series that focuses on internal displacement using digitally manipulated photographs.
Osunde isn't just a gifted photographer, she is also an exceptional writer. In 2015, she took part in one of the most sought-after literary workshops in Africa: The Farafina Trust Creative Writing Workshop.
Following the workshop, her selection of vignettes, Shapes, was selected and edited by none other than Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.
Speaking about Osunde's incredible writing style, Chimamanda said:
"Eloghosa Osunde writes beautifully. She is brave and unafraid to embrace sentiment. I loved the delicate sensibility of her work, her honest and subtle poetry of protest."
