58 years ago today, the Federal republic of Nigeria was nothing but happy to be officially an independent nation. In celebration of Nigerian Independence. Olive Uche creative directed and produced the photo series One Nigeria.

One Nigeria is a homage to Nigeria through art. One Nigeria highlights the the photography stylings of those who made it their mission to capture the essence and culture of Nigeria through their work. In this series we pay homage to photographers Solomon Osagie Alonge, J.D. Okhai Ojeikere, and Jonathan Adagogo Green recreating old images with a modern touch. Taking it a step further all the participants of the project are Nigerian and fellow creatives in different fields and breaking ground while at it and expanding the meaning and look of Nigeria.

This is One Nigeria – a love letter to a nation we call home.
