Eloghosa Osunde is a writer and photographer who lives in and works from Lagos. Her work in photography and writing is a constant attempt to gain insight into social and personal complexities.
Reoccurring themes in her work include: gender, grief, loss, love, trauma and belonging. She is interested in the documentation of urgent stories, using both photographs and words.
In June 2015, she was selected out of 1000+ applicants by Chimamanda Adichie for the Farafina Creative Writing workshop. In September 2015, her piece “Shapes” was selected, edited and published by Chimamanda for a literary supplement. In the same month, her first exhibition “Woman in Bloom” was held at Freedom Park. Early this year (January 2016), she was one of the selected artists for Rele Gallery’s Young Contemporaries Exhibition, where she exhibited her series “Obalende” – which was later featured in Nigeria’s This Day Style and The Guardian. She is one of the participants of Borders Within: The Trans-Nigerian Road Trip Project 2016
