Photographer & Writer

Hey there! I'm Toketemu, a multimedia storyteller based in Lagos, Nigeria. My aim is to capture the beauty and wonder of ordinary moments, the mundane, and the serendipity of everyday life of people and communities through my lens.Having grown up in Nigeria, I have always been drawn to the diverse and vibrant cultures that make up my country. This is where I started my photography journey, capturing the everyday moments of my family and friends. But soon, I realized that my true passion was capturing the essence of the people and communities around me, and that passion has taken me across Africa, documenting the lives of people in different countries and cultures.For me, the key to capturing impactful images is building connections with the people and places I photograph. Whether I'm in a bustling city or a remote village, I strive to connect with my subjects and create images that are both visually striking and emotionally powerful.Through my work, I aim to shine a light on the unique and inspiring stories of the people I meet, and to showcase the beauty and richness of my homeland. I believe that photography has the power to connect people across cultures and to inspire empathy and understanding, and I'm honored to be able to share my perspective with the world.
