High fashion meets classic portraiture in Lakin Ogunbanwo's work

Lakin Ogunbanwo

Nigerian photographer and the Style Profile star in House and Leisure's September issue, Lakin Ogunbanwo mixes fashion photography with classic portraiture. He juxtaposes vibrant colour and bold composition with darker undertones to create a minimalist homage to the style of African photography popular in the 1960s and '70s.
