My name is Apah Benson. I was born in Delta State, Nigeria. I started photography in 2018. I shot everything I could lay my eyes on at the time; sports, amateur models, street, etc. This helped me quickly understand the tenets of photography and the art of storytelling. My work is a testament of the African culture and skin colour. I tell this story through the use of shadows of shadows and light in my work.

This is the tale of a nation and a people. The proud denizens of the equator, bathing in overhead sunlight all year round; wealthy in Melanin pigments and blessed with a multidimensional culture spanning over 200,000 years. This is the tale of their beauty and radiance. This is not a tale of a broken history. This is not a tale begging for pity and recognition. This is a tale oride and strength.
