Nigerian photographer Kadara Enyeasi talks to us about his project Human Encounters.

Human Encounters is a photo series that began early 2011. With this, I try to examine the human form and mind. Ideas of identity and the essence of emotions are played out by the subjects in the photographs. This is achieved using the tools of Conversation and Music in-between shoots. By doing this, the mind is broken down and a leak of emotion is let out. There’s more to the photographs than what I’ve explained. That bit is for the viewer to recognise.

These are self portraits from the series.

“I deal with critical photography that communicates the topic of sexuality, bridging the gap between rich African culture and the Western ideas of sexuality and human psychology”
