Portraits of pain

Portraits of Pain uses photography as an art form to express the different motions that come with sickle cell. It’s a collection of abstracts, that which can’t be seen: - the hidden disease, the pain, the fatigue from anemia, mental health and depression, the isolation, frustration, the red cells shaped liked a sickle, the damage, the resilience, suffering, hope, love, the battle and the fight to overcome.

This work was publicly exhibited at Imperial College, London in 2019.

I collaborated on this project with:


UK based photographer, Jim Higham

Nigerian based creative director, Ijeoma Okochi-Agwu
