me at social events

St. Patrick’s Day in a university town is always surreal. My friend and I saw cops breaking up three different house parties at 11am while we were driving to a grad faculty event.

I’m Ajuma Abalaka from Nigeria. Photography for me is the best way to express and recreate my reality. I’m inspired by the social and cultural events that revolve around me and the faces I have grown up to be familiar with, which I now love to document.

I use a Canon 6D and EF 24-105 L lens.
