First things first I’m the realest.

The urge to say that phrase randomly during conversations has been at an all time high! Makes for many awkward moments man… Damn you I.G.G.Y

Hello people!
I am excited about this creatives blog post because I discovered a gem!!!

Aaaaaaah the wonders of art…
The wonders of discovering raw and authentic art!
I really hope you will be as jazzed as I was when I first discovered this photographer.

When the words child prodigy come to mind,most people think in terms of music right? This particular individual is a photography prodigy.

Well, God decided to bless some beings much earlier in their lives and this boy is definitely one of those highly blessed people.

His work is DEEP!
His photographs stir emotions in you and leave you thinking about unraveled memories etc etc.
Believe me when I say,
*I was not ready* when I first saw some of his work!

I saw these images fitting in light of the recent death of legendary actor and comedian Robin Williams as a result of depression. (RIP)

*You never know what people are going through*
*Be their light*

The image of the man crying (which you will see later on, I’m trying to create suspense here) is not only heart wrenching but also tragically beautiful.

Let me show you this amazing photographers work before I can go any further.

*not so loud drumrolls please*





His name is David Uzochukwu.

I will just leave you to wallow in the beauty of these images…
