June Guest Space: I See It Now: photography as a form of reflection by Wasi Daniju

Join us as we are immersed in the world of brilliant portraiture, documentary, theatre and live performance photographer, Wasi Daniju.

Bio:

I am a person-centred therapist and a photographer in my early 40s; a British-born Nigerian; a practising Muslim. I’ve lived many lives and continue to do so, and bring this myriad of experiences to the way in which I see, interact with and document the world. My photography ranges through portraiture, documentary, theatre and live performance. I focus not so much on the genre, but on connecting with and communicating particular stories, both real-world and otherwise. The thread of documenting and a focus on co-authorship run through my work, whatever the genre; ultimately, for me, photography is first and foremost an act of bearing witness.

Summary:

In this talk, I will be sharing photography from a number of my projects.  While the focus of each project is unique, there are re-occurring themes of identity, home, and belonging.  Some of the work also explores grief and responses to loss, and how these two impact identity.  I will be considering the ways in which photography has been a tool of reflection, helping me to see myself and the world more clearly.
