My name is OLU! I’m primarily focused on community documentation, portraiture, and contemporary street photography; all of which centers black joy and black experiences. My portfolio also includes bodies of work that document industrial history, urban transportation infrastructure, and my personal journey. I consider this element of my work to be an intersection of industrial design, infrastructure, architectural, and fine art photography. My interest in this documentation is guided by light, and fueled by a genuine love for these spaces, machines, and the beautiful photographs I see within them. Likewise, what I photograph on the street and elsewhere is a body of work guided by adoration. This work makes up the bulk of my portfolio, and it’s the basis for many projects I’d like to execute in the future. The deep love and respect I have for those around me inspires me to see and highlight the beauty of passing moments, wherein I have the great fortune of being a witness. I am so grateful to be able to take these photographs and to share them with you all!
