Deep, rich melanin, saturated color palettes: a few of the eye-catching elements of photographer Tolulope’s work. Always featuring a simply stunning diverse group of black models with natural hair textures and richly melanated skin amongst sumptuous brightly colored backdrops, his work highlights the versatility and beauty of dark skin. Now based in the U.S., Tolulope was born in Lagos where he lived until taking his studies abroad to Minneapolis where he study photography and digital imaging.
