Photographer Romeo Shagba, Make Up Artist Medina Ja’afaru and Stylist Mimi Ogunbowale Collaborate on a Colourful Spring Editorial



Secure Me_Romeo Shagba_001Photographer Romeo Shagba steps outside his signature dark aesthetic for some colour under the sun with this vibrant Spring campaign that was achieved in collaboration with makeup artist Medina Ja’afaru, stylist Mimi Ogunbowale and models Titilayo Ayorinde and Achonye Chinyere Margaret both represented by Zahara Models.

Speaking on the inspiration behind the editorial titled ‘Secure Me’, Romeo says: “The story plays around with the idea of solitude in companionship, that brief moment of self contemplation while in the company of each other; independence in co-dependency”.
