THE IMPRESSION 50 ONES TO WATCH – 2019
50 Female Creatives Representing the Next Generation of Talent as nominated by our network

Ruth Ossai grew up in Southeastern Nigeria and is now based in West Yorkshire, UK. She is known for her portrait and studio photography that empowers Nigerian communities by creating narratives with her subjects that celebrate their personal identities. Her photography equally stuns in its power and brings forth a strong sense of joy. Ossai, who also works in youth development in the UK and across Africa, recently collaborated with filmmaker Akinola Davies Jr on a special project for Kenzo, and has also shown at LagosPhoto. She now previews her latest series, a multimedia concept with fashion designer and recent Central Saint Martins’ graduate Mowalola Ogunlesi, at Labs.
