Nigerian Identity is a series of portraits of my fellow countrymen photographed throughout the United States. All people are presented in a uniform manner; photographed on white seamless, looking directly into the camera lens, and enhanced so that the skin tones are virtually identical. This approach allows each person to represent their individuality as Nigerians and symbolizes the unity of the Nigerian people.
