Behind The Lens With A Nigerian Photographer: Oye Diran

Oye Diran

Oye Diran's work speaks for itself. The Nigerian photographer's artwork has been featured in Vogue ITALIA and Afropunk. His latest project, "A Ti De" (we have arrived), explores vintage Yoruba fashion from the 60s, 70s, and 80s. Seeing that the Yoruba tribe is one of the largest in Nigeria, it was no surprise to see tens of thousands of Nigerians resonating with his artwork when he debuted it on Nataal back in March.
