PHOTOGRAPHER
DEVOTES HIS LIFE
TO FANCY HAIRSTYLES

Self-taught Nigerian photographer, 
J. D. 'Okhai Ojeikere
(1930-2014)
followed his passion for photography
and the extreme hair styles of
Nigerian women.

When he died last year at 83,
he left over 1,000 black-and-white
photographs of extreme hairstyles
throughout the years.

The fleeting aspect of culture
is shown in his hair style photo exhibits
which are now traveling around the world.
