Stephen Tayo is an autodidact fashion, art, and culture photographer who uses his work as a platform to offer social commentary on wealth, class, race, gender, and identity. Influenced by his undergraduate studies in philosophy and interest in contemporary anthropology, fashion, and social justice, he adopts a multidisciplinary approach to portray the idiosyncrasies of everyday life in Nigeria. Embracing his surroundings as his photography studio, Tayo creates art that is as impactful and thought-provoking as it is beautiful.
