Here is what photographer Ty Bello had to say;

GENEVIEVE NNAJI:BEAUTY AND POWER
I
started off my photography journey as a documentary photographer .. The
images . Though they leaned towards portraiture were always very
‘strong’ and ‘gritty’. Stronger images always seemed to have more
depth.. And the images were successful too., I got to have them hung in
prestigious galleries and biennales around the world..from the Palais
des Beaux-arts to the National centre for photography in New York.
My
work was finding its place in the art world . There was always
something missing though..and I knew it .I was secretly in love with
beauty of a different kind.. It was missing in the work I put out on a
pedestal. It became clearer when I had a long conversation with
Cameroonian photographer Angele Essamba. In the past, I would shy away
from showing any one I respected in contemporary photography my portaits
of beauty ., they were not ‘strong’ … I was right .. They were not . It
wasn’t the beauty in the images that weakened them .. I just needed to
grow. To understand beauty and to find my own approach. I’ve been on
this journey for ten years. Always questioning the work .. And holding
back .. Then pushing again. But every once in a while I photograph
someone who helps me have those real conversations with beauty ..
Conversations that go somewhere.
Genevieve
Nnaji is one of those subjects ., maybe she has her own versions of
those conversations within her self. Or maybe it’s because she’s a
strong beautiful woman with a clear sense of who she is. When I
photograph her, I see someone not caught up in but truly understands the
power of beauty . That its sometimes enough . It can have a voice in
the image that doesn’t have to be vain and empty. God makes Beautiful
..And it will always have our attention. How much sky do we really need?
…for instance .And must the sun set so uniquely today.. There’s power
in making a beautiful portrait .. It’s power that I’m still leaning to
understand .Letting every attribute and feature tell its own story …as
written by the Maker.
