Omission In Print
As an American-born child of Nigerian immigrants, I continually work to shape my identity as an African American woman.
The Omission in Print series focuses on images of family members abroad in Nigeria. Photo transfer images of these relatives—partially obscured by Dutch wax cloth, burlap, and embroidery—form fragmented visual narratives.
The series addresses culture loss and the uncertainty of a family history partially lost-in-translation over the decades.
