I created these or told this story with as much energy as Kanye ranting over why he should be given a chance in fashion. To me It’s a study of man, as an African man. The feelings and evolutions we face in this day and age seen through my aesthetic pauses of both lens and intuition. We approached each detail with precaution and detail, starting from the cover which stands on its own as a poster for Man. Approaching it with a magnitude of lessons I want to learn as a man myself. Things I feel as I grow to the man I become. What I see in the images are life lessons. I want us to be able to look back at this study and also take it as a note pad, or a learning brick for the kids but not only for them but also as a way to see our own growth. To see the lessons we laid out for ourselves as men being executed cause we didn’t stop growing. This is my minimalistic approach to a topic so broad, my view put in eight intricate pictures. Nothing more but my work and it’s words speaking through your views as an Owoden.
Man, Be Patient. Anger is never power. Strength comes in wisdom. What is yours, should be fought for. Not with blood, but with courage. Stand for something.
