Yellow Gele in Bloom, Photograph, 2011, 41 x 58.5 cm

The Gele

“The Gele* is an explosion of colour. Interestingly, the visual impact of the Gele as a fashion accessory is unique to Nigeria. To me it always looks like an elaborate crown. And against black skin, it takes on an even stronger dimension. It reminds me that every individual has a colourful essence, which is what I see when I photograph.”
