My father on the eve of Easter. 07 April 2018 📷 @sincerelyhilina • From an ongoing series “Portraying my Father”- “One of my significant memories of my family begins from the black and white images my father documented since the ‘60s that were kept stacked in a closet. Through these images, I was able to understand what my parents and siblings looked like when they were younger. Looking back, I began to understand that my father is probably one of my biggest influences without me knowing it. He has always been fond of making images, mostly of family and relatives. Through his images, I learned that photography is about the past; it makes sense when you look at it years later. I decided to document my fathers’ life and legacy in 2016, almost two years after he experienced a major heart condition and the mere realization that I am fortunate to have him around to ask him about his life and tell his story. This photo essay comes as a celebration of my father and the urge to look into his life then and now.” africanlens.co • #AfricanLens #AfricanPhotographers #AfricanPhotography #AfricanCulture #AfricanPeople #AfricanStories #africancreatives #Africa #BlackExcellence #contemporaryAfricanArt #diaspora #Motherland #BlackBeauty #AfricanArt #AfricanPhotographers #BlackPortrait #AfricanHistory #PhotoOfTheDay #travelAfrica #LoveAfrica #EverydayAfrica #photoAfrica #africankids #blackbeauty #blackportrait #AfricanBeauty

“Met Teresa while on assignment in Naari. As most kids are, she was instantly taken with my #fujixt2. Then she asked, "do you make money taking pictures? Where did you learn? Can I learn too?" . My fellow African photographers, your presence is important to kids like Teresa. Don't underestimate or hide your talents. Get out in your communities and show future generations that they, too, can do this. That photography and art in general is a viable career choice and that they can make money expressing themselves. It's not impossible.” - 📷 @farahkhad
