Nominee: Creatives Of The Year 2019

Stephen Tayo

Stephen Tayo is a photographer who captures intimate portraits that reveal the sartorial flair and quiet dignity of his sitters. Focusing on their clothing and accessories, his work explores the multi-layered symbolism of fashion: what clothing says about identity and relations with family and community. In 2018, he was commissioned by Dutch street wear brand Patta and Nike on the occasion of their collaboration, to shoot a campaign for their launch which was exhibited in London.
