One Big Family
The title reflects the warm welcome I received while travelling to many African countries over the years. I stayed in people’s homes, ate with them. I enjoyed eating the delicious Hausa Koko (millet porridge), and drinking fresh camel’s milk, and Burukoku (the local brew).
I have always been very interested in photographing people, and traditional houses.
My aim has always been to capture the warmth, the colours and vibrant life I knew as a child in Nigeria, and to - in my own little way - help preserve some traditions which I believe are fast disappearing because of our modern way of life.
