Naïve, Olamide Ojegbenro and Olwen Wymer

€25.00
DESCRIPTION

Naïve celebrates diverse faces in the Irish Art Landscape, and how the artist found comfort in photography during a difficult period of his life when photography was the only thing he felt he could turn to. Naïve is about the importance of being an artist in its purest form. The Naïve photobook is an extension of the What Cannot Be Seen exhibition, which took place in March 2022.

This photobook is about celebrating Ireland's diverse faces and Ojegbenro's approach to photography. After a challenging time in his life, photography was the only escape from the reality of emotional pain, an activity where he felt like himself.

The word "naive" refers to/ or denotes art produced in a style which deliberately rejects sophisticated artistic techniques and has a bold directness resembling a child's work, typically in bright colours with little or no perspective.

Featured: Abasiono Adams, Eileen Cardona, Ann Isabel Kiala, Dan Whelan, Yewande, Deborah Otache, Yasmine Oju, Hope Bello, Saoirse Flynn, Julieta Rodles, Immanuel, Celeste Gil, Tabitha Miguel,Themba Mwenelupembe, Sarah McCarthy, Sabrina Rodrigues, Mj, Oj,Taiwo Omanosano, Annie O'Dea and  Immanuel Sola.
