My friend Thompson. S. Ekong, a Visual Creator and Director Of Baroque Age From Lagos, Nigeria defines Photography as “capturing life in frozen Deja Vus.”, the philosophy behind every image he’s taken.
As the name of the series goes, this was created to move and push you into creating a perspective of your own. A visual/art series all with one aim of force directed at how you feel, understand and perceive your world.
This is a message and a guide to existing.
We’ve taken different mediums of creativity, and through collaboration from our in-house creatives in Baroque Age, made it all one form of “FORCE”.
This is my third world.
This is a paradox to the dying generation.
They’ve lived in this dispair with no remorse.
We’ve inhaled this air with tears that beg for more.
We’re born to create change with no tools or structure, our depressed hearts move in silence.
This is the root of my clinical state, my art bleeds to me.
Unwavered sadness since our birth can never be understood.
I take this opportunity to let my art speak for so many.
This is for depression, for sadness, to those locked in their darkness.
I share this void with my truth and yours.
