While Valentines day is recognised as the International day of romance – Nigerian based photographer, Clement Ogoh, wants us to think a little differently. In his brand new editorial called ‘Love Me’ featuring images of a fresh faced, natural woman on her own with nature and art – the photographer seeks to promote the notion of self love.
[epq-quote align=”align-center”]”I want people to never look down on themselves. Even if you are single, you have to love yourself before you let your heart out for someone else to keep”- Clement Ogoh.[/epq-quote]
The editorial was inspired by a movie the photographer watched called ‘How To be Single’ which explores the complexities of love. In a series of images, we see a young woman who is confident in herself, by herself. She still feels sexy, despite being on her own. And finds joy, wherever she goes. So, whether you have a Valentine or not, remember loving yourself is by far the best gift you can ever get.
