Fashion photographer Aminat Adenuga talks working with an all black-female team
A stop-in-awe moment to celebrate creatives raising the bar and shape-shifting the aesthetics of an entire culture. #SpellSalutes
“Being a creative is hard, especially in these times. Finding and then maintaining the motivation to create while in lockdown was difficult, but I was able to do a series of FaceTime shoots with a few fellow creatives. That really kept me sane.
"I love the idea of working with black creatives, which is why everyone on the team was a black female. I believe we should encourage and uplift one other because the industry is hard enough.
"It’s no secret that as a woman you have to work 10 times harder to get recognition in a male dominated field. That said, I love how more female photographers and videographers are joining the scene. There’s room for us all.”
