    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.

    The EyeEm Awards is the world's largest photography competition with over 590,000 submissions from more than 88,000 photographers in over 150 countries.
