A gay Nigerian photographer named Rotimi Fani-Kayode had series of tough times throughout his journey as a photographer, who was horrendously expelled from the crowd for the ideas which he wanted to portray with his pictures.

It was back on 1980s when Fani-Kayode targeted notability in the United Kingdom and United States, he realized the Sturm und Drang ( emotional instability ) of the gay community. Those were the situation finding people with HIV/AIDS also the most haunting method to cold-shoulder the non-accepted communities or people, in specific. Most of his photographs beamed out the voluptuous side of sexuality and also the nationality being severely trounced.

He protruded his cultural look about the society filled of ostracism and ignorance all over, through his intense photographs. He once said “I see parallels now between my own work and that of the Osogbo artists in Yorubaland who themselves resisted the cultural subversions of neo-colonialism and who celebrate the rich, secret world of our ancestors.”

Fani-Kayode is outstretching in the west and in Africa now, more than 25 years after his death. It is completely modulating the ideology of society.
