Day at the Beach, 2018 is the second in a series of sartorial interpretations centering African-inspired dress, and style, in four different time periods.
“Afrocentrism and my particular African identity more than anything else inform and inspire my fashion photography practice. A lot of the concepts that I choose to explore are me reflecting on society and culture and offering commentary on what I see. Other times it’s primarily aesthetic. In any case I aim to champion being African, being black. I want people to appreciate the aesthetic significance of the visuals while joining in the observation, reflection and celebration.” Uzoma Orji
