This extraordinary copy of Once As Lovers features an impelling photograph graciously provided by Photographer Cia Gould from her fabulous L.E.G.S (Learn.Empower.Give.Support) collection, unearthing the divine goddess energy and diverse qualities of women. Learn more about Cia.


I love to convey different vantage points, concise concepts and lived experiences in my work. Focusing on tonality, contrast and compelling compositions that emphasize leading lines, textures, architectural and geometrical structures. 

Creating monochromatic photographs that reframe the way we perceive objects and everyday scenery. Exploring accentual parameters that bring shape and form to fore. I strive to make fine art photography accessible in communal spaces and give voice to underrepresented works.

Support the Arts:

The Akinfe Fatou Project uses poetry as a platform to promote unity, empowerment, positive exchange and interchangeable ideas. It also lends to the visibility of women of color in the arts. The project encompasses Akinfe's written, performance and photographic works.
