Documenting the style-scape of Lagos, Nigeria




This is when I do this thing. I see someone and abstractly start imagining who they are and what they do. Most of the time it's very idyllic and borderline halcyon.

So while photographing her, I again lapsed into my mental flight of fancy and this is what I imagined.

She's a 50% partner in a business that caters to lovers of all things vintage. They've just opened their 5th store in Lagos and are looking to expand out of state. In her spare time, she makes pretty wigs for women who've lost their hair to cancer and she also takes part in kick-boxing classes. 

The other 50% partner in the vintage store is her fiance who she met at 2013's national kick-boxing championship. He's an investment banker, specializing in private equity and the investment in her store was a business interest at first, but quickly turned into something more when he realized he couldn't live without their intellectually stimulating conversations.

I'll just leave it here with my randomly Utopian imagination of other people's lives. 

Enjoy :)


  1. Lol. I enjoyed reading this. Who's the pretty pie? I can also invest in her vintage store ;)

  2. She's so damn cute. I want her hat and her hair and her glasses. And her skin.
