Josiah Esowe (Jos, Nigeria) makes photos and films. By taking daily life as subject matter while commenting on the everyday aesthetic of human values, Esowe often creates work using creative game tactics, but these are never permissive. Play is a serious matter: during the game, different rules apply than in everyday life and even everyday objects undergo transubstantiation.
His photos are characterised by the use of everyday objects in an atmosphere of human mentality in which recognition plays an important role.
Josiah Esowe currently lives and works in New York.
