Asa Nwa by Vanessa Endeley

Vanessa Endeley is a self-taught visual artist, fine art and documentary photographer born and raised in the city of Lagos. She expresses herself by bringing her portraits to life using vibrant colours.

Endeley’s documentary photography includes an on-going project titled ‘Working Women’ which began in 2019. She focuses on the social injustices faced by Nigerian sex workers and represents the trials they go through in a way that humanises, empowers, and validates them.

Developed from her personal experiences, and even using herself as a subject, Endeley is also passionate about bringing awareness to the general community on the issues surrounding mental health illnesses.

This is a work from the series ‘OGADINMA’ meaning ‘it will be well’ in the Igbo language. Her signature individualised portraits obscure the tales that lie beneath the blindfold, questioning the role our eyes play in offering a glimpse into the depth of the preliminary facade. Endeley uses digital interventions to texturize her portraits, leaving a digital footprint that trace the fabrics and skin of her sitters.

In the artist’s own words: “2020 has been a rough year for everyone and for different reasons. I embarked on creating this series as an outlet for my personal healing, drawing strength an inspiration from some astounding women around me.”
