Andrew Esiebo


Contemporary Photographers

“Born in 1978 in Lagos, Nigeria, Andrew Oghenerukewe Esiebo first came into contact with photography through his foster father, Joseph Esiebo. He began to take photographs after he got his first camera as a gift from a friend, Jose Maria Ortuno and through consistent practice and tutelage from US-based photographer Paul Udstrand, Andrew is now one of Nigeria’s young and illustrious photojournalists, working on portraits of urban life with his country’s culture and heritage as its background.” (source) See lots of photos here, some more here, one of his articles here; and you can see images by members of his Black Box collective here.
