Adéola Olagunjú : Redemption / Navigating a Dark Space

Adeola Olagunju uses self-portraiture and re-staging of traditional Yoruba healing rituals to explore her journey through a near-death experience, and to visualize what it means to come out on the other side. These photographs interrogate the space between trauma and healing, alienation and home with images that at once document, reconstruct, perform and imagine.
