Every photographer has something that makes them different; that unique perspective when it comes to telling stories that have the power to keep the audience under a spell. One visual artist with such powers is Nigerian born photographer, Jolaoso Adebayo.
If there is anything I love more than fashion, it will be finding new creatives to obsess over. From bloggers to stylists to photographers, I love seeing how creatives express themselves through their art, especially if it is visually channelled.
A look at Adebayo’s Instagram – which easily doubles as his portfolio – will have you captivated by his ability to capture light and angles in such a unique and interesting format.
When I asked about his choice of fashion over other forms of photography his response was: “I love that there are no rules.” In truth, I see that Adebayo doesn’t follow any set rules in photography. Rather, he focuses on using every image to tell a story – a beautiful and intriguing story that stirs up emotions deep inside the viewer’s mind.
Adebayo has a knack for capturing his models in unique lights which set a soulful tone to his images. His unusual angles also transform what would have been an otherwise regular picture into a commanding work of art, all the while showing Adebayo’s understanding of how clothes and his subjects work together.
Throughout his works, he demonstrates a lofty knowledge of compositions. Of course, I could easily go on and on about his skills, but I’d much rather you see it – after all, isn’t a picture worth a thousand words?
Here’s a look at his intriguing portfolio…
