Top 5 Instagram Posts from Nigerian Photographer Adeolu Osibodu

We take a look at Adeolu Osibodu’s top Instagram posts. The Nigerian photographer and photo artist has a distinctly African style that seems to reflect his experiences.

Our list is not a definitive claim of the 5 best images from Osibodu but rather five of the best images that reveal the art that he creates. In no particular order, we look at some of Osibodu’s best posts on Instagram.

1) A Well Fermented Image

The first photo on the list is one that, when first viewed, sees a beautiful portrait of his sister. However, according to Osibodu’s caption for the image he hated the image when he first saw it, but then over time he began to appreciate the art he created. We are all better off for him having realised that and posted it.

2) A Love Story in November

With this photo, Osibodu posted a prayer as the caption. Asking that his heart might be that of a boy again. The existentialism of the photo brings across the brilliant mind of the photographer.
