Born 1981, Adolphus Opara started out working in a then major art gallery in Lagos where he gained ample experience. His passion for photography grew as a result of the constant contact he had with both local and international practitioners when he worked at the art gallery. For the first 3-4years of his career as a photographer, he travelled well around the country and continent documenting different festivals and events of cultural show.

He later delved into documentary photography where he has been nominated and selected for master classes and workshops around Africa. He has covered assignments for notable organizations and his works have been published in magazines, books and websites that include; The Financial Times (FT), Bloomberg, BBC, Associated Press (AP), The Independent, Private magazine, Time Out Nigeria, British Airways Highlife Magazine, World Press Photo Enter, Klang Sehen, New African Magazine and Nigerians Behind the lens.

Adolphus Opara’s work is induced by encounters with people and their daily effort to exist amidst obstacles that define and situate their individual locality. He uses visual story telling with the aid of pictures to show his emotional connection to the issues he confronts. In recent times he’s photographic projects are stirring away from being representational to being more conceptual as a result of his new thought processes.

Adolphus’ works have been exhibited at the Tate Modern London, Museum fur Vulkerkunde in Vienna – Austria, African Photography Encounters in Mali, National Museum in Nigeria, Tiwani Contemporary in London. Brundyn and Gonsalves in South Africa and Lagos photo festival amongst others.

Photographer Biography: Reze Bonna

OnoBello OnoBello

OnoBello

Reze Bonna is a trained architect/photographer and music producer/artiste rep of several years experience, who studied and runs a fashion/ architectural photography outfit in South Africa, servicing a number of the agencies in the country. He is fast becoming one of the forces to reckon with in the fashion industry in both Nigeria and South Africa. He has a gift of finding beauty in everyone, and a persona that easily puts his subjects at ease. A stickler for hard work, he doesn’t believe any picture should be taken the same way twice, and would rather often times, push the boundary, resulting in unique and interestingly different images.

His training in Architecture also helps him see images from different perspectives. He has shot in different parts of the world, covering fashion weeks from Africa to Europe. He is a founding member of the group “REZolution” which is a collective of creative photographers, and a member of the Camera Club of Johannesburg, and the Professional Photographers of America.

 His photography portfolio is incredible; he’s shot one of the world’s first and foremost American supermodels Janice Dickenson and is well known for his works in the South African fashion industry. Though berthing his practice in Nigeria, he however shuttles between South African and Nigeria for photography. In Nigeria, his portfolio extends shooting for Thisday Style insert magazine and other distinguished private clients.

He is also an artiste representative and producer and has worked with various artistes including gospel singers Kirk Franklin, Chevelle Franklyn, Cece Winans, Fred Hammond as well as other stars such as Shaggy and Ne-Yo.
