Today I came across a series of photographs by Lagos-based photographer Medina Dugger. One word sums up the collection. Wow. She uses bold and bright images to celebrate Nigerian hair culture. “Chroma: An Ode to J.D. ‘Okhai Ojeikere, is an on-going series which celebrates women’s hair Styles in Nigeria through a fanciful, contemporary lens. The images are inspired by hair color trends in Lagos and by the late Nigerian photographer J.D. Ojeikere.” As an African American women, I can relate. I understand how much hair can play a vital role in our culture and I appreciate that she took such a colorful spin on the topic.
