DIASPORANS MAKING A DIFFERENCE
Kenechukwu Nwakalor is a young passionate wedding/ Event and documentary photographer based in Abuja, Nigeria.
He got influenced locally by the works of Tom Saater, Bayo Omoboriowo, andrew esiebo and Jide Odukoya amongst others.
I was able to ask him a few questions about himself and his work; check out his answers below!
Ndidi Love: Tell me about yourself:
What inspired you to start photography?
KC: I have always loved pictures, i was inspired to start photography because it allowed me see the world in a different way, it made me observe and see details in things that were rather plain. I love most the art of visual story telling.
Ndidi Love: What does the African Diaspora mean to you, and how do you best connect with the diaspora?
KC: The african diaspora is a beautiful platform that helps me connect and share stories with people with similar heritage as me.
⁃ I connect best with diaspora through the social media platforms.
Ndidi Love: If you could give back, what would that look like specifically?
KC: Giving back to me means, using photography as a tool of education, sharing the bright side of Africa, letting the world know how beautiful and rich Africa is.
Ndidi Love: Where do you see your brand in 20 years?
KC: In 20years, that is a long time you know but as time goes by, i would love to have exhibited my works around the world.
