Passion, mastery of her art and an uncanny ability to capture visuals are the traits that have earned Adesuwa Iyare accolades for her works.

The South Africa trained photographer who enjoys street and documentary photography currently serves as the principal photographer to Mrs Dolapo Osinbajo, the Wife of the Vice President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Iyare who studied International Relations from the Lagos State University noted that her love for art made her become a photographer.

“My love for art and documentary led me into photography. Photography has given me the opportunity to share in people’s most special moments on a regular basis and it has introduced me to many people who I now call friends”.

On the most challenging picture she has ever taken, Iyare said: “Every job is special and some come with their own unique challenges.I won’t say a particular image because some images are not planned in documentary. Because one is not sure what the next composition will be based on. All is dependent on my photography instinct”.

The revered photographer whose works have been exhibited in and outside Nigeria including the Intra- Africa Trade Fair(IATF), stated that she was joyful when her ‘Table of glory’ picture trended on social media.

“There is a great feeling of joy seeing your work being shared all around.I felt good seeing my work out there and being the topic of trend for a good cause even when I least expected the picture to trend that much”.
