    This photo is from the series 'Finding Amos,' a series of self portraits dedicated to Adeolu’s grandfather who recently passed away. "Maybe this is inspired by an urge to find consolation or my intimate affection for a time before or me just being 'Adeolu'. Regardless, I’m forever glad I happen to find myself in this state." Ogun State, Nigeria.
