In addition to his photos, Ogunbanwo partnered with a cinematographer to create a short creative video that shows Udobang “slowly moving in space, melting in and out of these tactile forms to a mesmerizing effect,” as an audio overlay plays of her reading from one of her poems.
“The body as a form dissolves into color and texture—stretch marks and colored elbows lead to folds in flesh, tan lines, pores and irregularities made beautiful,” Ogunbanwo explains. “These defects attract attention in the same way that a scratch on an otherwise smooth surface would. They create imbalance, or markers of interest. When removing the body as subject, the eye adjusts to these moments of remarkable disruption as ones to be admired rather than dismissed. In this way, this series revises our mode of looking, feeling and perceiving beauty—beyond convention.”
Photographed on a Canon 5Ds and 50mm lens at f/2.5 and 1/40 sec., with natural light and warm continuous light.
