Self Portrait 05
Giclée print on Hahnemuhle Photo Rag
Suggested framing: dark wood, full bleed
Photographer and stylist Daniel Obasi’s work considers topics like manhood, expression, and sexuality in the context of societal power structures. Taking inspiration from his own and his friends' lives, Daniel’s scenes are heavy with a sculptural symbolism that is both playful and gentle as well as satirical and activist. Adding on a surreal and sometimes mystical layer of surrealism onto a harsh everyday reality for many, Daniel intends to challenge perceptions and institutional behavior towards LGBTQ minorities.
