i recently came across the work of photographer omar victor diop and was immediately blown away. i spent almost an hour going through his work trying to narrow it down to just a couple of favorites to share with you. born in (and inspired by) senegal, he mixes his photography with other forms of art and design - interiors, costume, graphics. he says he hopes to capture the diversity of modern african societies and lifestyles.
my favorites are his portraits. his use of color, pattern and texture is stunning.
