Jide Odukoya

Medium: Photography
Project Participated in: 2012 Road Trip; Benin Biennale



Jide Odukoya had very few photographs of himself as a kid, unlike his siblings who have many to show off. However, he seems to be on rampage these days to compensate for the past deprivation. Only that he now delights in capturing those special, rare moments in the lives of other people. He started his photography career when he purchased a Canon 550D from savings he made doing Digital Graphics design, branding of small-scale businesses and building (front-end aesthetics for) websites. He quickly fell in love with street photography and has since photographed on the streets of Nigeria across major cities, including Lagos, Abuja and Port Harcourt. His style is Contemporary, Urban, Artistic and Photojournalistic, and has been greatly influenced by street photography. His works focuses on environmental changes, urbanization, social unrest and domestic issues. Through a combination of photography, text and digital art, he aims to illustrate broader issues through individual stories. His work is a testament to his belief that intimate, sensitive photographs are a catalyst to change and sterilization to human suffering. He holds a national diploma in Industrial Maintenance Engineering from the Yaba College of Technology, Lagos, and a B.Sc. in Systems Engineering from the prestigious University of Lagos. When he is not doing photography, he swims, spends time with friends and travels round the world.
