Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, A portrait

I remember when I first met Chimamanda Adichi, the session was really interesting. She kept on distracting me and my focus as I was photographing her. It was all in jest I must say but it was really interesting too. I remember her going on about how I must complete my PhD thesis and how I was so defiant on the issue of how unready I was. It was such a soft topic at the time as I didn't want to d with anything academic at the time. In the end she gave me this look and I'm so happy it all went well in the end.

I was looking forward to this one, I hoped you photographed her, she is my favourite after Achebe. Wonderful capture. Loving the series

Your pictures are so real and true. Chimamanda has built a unique style for herself. She'a one of the most detailed and hardworking writers.
