A Study of Harmattan Earth tones and Movement .

Portrait in fabric movement

Sometime in January, I got back together with Kelechi Orode, one of my favorite photographers in Abuja. This time we decided to explore Abuja’s earth tones in the harmattan haze, while also exploring drapery and movement in clothing.

It was an exhilarating day, everything just seemed to work just right. The wind blew just enough to capture garments in motion. The sun shone enough for the brown earth to glimmer.

We released a few images as a teaser and here’s your shot to see more of what we created together.
