  • All

    My home, Africa. My home sweet home, The home that birthed the strong “African woman“, The one that is taught to “work hard”. Hard enough to take care of her home from the second she can breathe, patient enough to put everyone else before her, humble enough to express herself a little as possible, so [...] Continue Reading
  • SOLITUDE by Emmanuel Achusim

    For me, when ever I think of Space, landscape , wildernesses , seashores and skies the word that comes to my mind is FREEDOM, photographing this series felt amazing, the Solitude made me feel like I had everything under control, from the wind to the clouds and even my free spirited model Jazzmine.
