Art Description

Installation: Black & White, Paper, Environmental, Polaroid and Clay on Paper and Canvas.

Domestic Work: Lights & Shadows is a collection of photographs
from my on going photo series.
As the name implies, Lights signify the positivities in any
given occurence/event while Shadows depict the negative
counterpart.

Estimates suggests that there are at least 64.5 million
domestic workers worldwide, over 15% of them are children.
Whilst many employers respect domestic workers, sadly
others force them to work long hours, lock them in homes,
and show only violence.

This series is a voyage to bring to limelight the various ways
in which domestic workers are treated by various individuals
or homes as the case maybe. It is versely becoming a contemporary
issue when it comes to the degree of ill-treatment on this workers
by individuals who are supposed to be a guide or a brace to some of
these workers who are either economically or naturally deprived of
some of the basic life necessities.
Irrespective of the fact that a good number of these domestic workers
are mistreated, some of them are still properly braced by a few employers.
