Black Mamuu is a 21 year old self taught Nigerian photographer exploring visual identity with the use of shadows, light and colours to capture enigmatic and sometimes mystical portraits.
In love with shadows he tends to hide bits and pieces of his subjects and their surroundings in them, making the highlighted parts stand out and allowing the viewer to find the story in what little is shown.
