Jide Odukoya’s photographic series shows Nigeria abuzz through the lens of traditional Nigerian weddings, presented as some of the world’s most opulent ceremonies.

Turn It Up: On Paradoxes deploys a critical lens to explore the paradox of parallel Nigerian worlds; contrasting cosmopolitan affluence and extravagance, with underlying economic poverty.

His work focuses on global consumerism and overindulgence, Nigeria’s contagious spirit of celebration, and moments of everyday intimacy.
