Artist Statement

Adeyemi Adebayo

When I first held a camera, it was to inquire about people out of curiosity. I’m still curious and inquiring about the history of everything, especially cultures and landscapes. 

In my work, I explore loneliness, age, migration, and strife. I’m interested in photography alongside other art forms as means to evaluate moods and dispositions critically, both in the presence of bodies and the potential absence of, as they undergo subjugation, injustice, prejudice, and exploitation, or simply as they migrate. I am also interested in using art and photography to examine and criticize our approach to activism.
