Nadine Ijewere is becoming well known for her exploration of representation, and the intersections between identity, gender, and sexuality. Working between fashion editorial and more personal projects, in April, Ijewere visited her grandmother’s hometown in Lagos, Nigeria to shoot a contemporary portrait series. Titled 9-ja_17, the images focus on the relationship between youth and notions of gender and identity, “blurring the lines of clothing, poses, and location”. “I wanted to look at identity, and how men and women in Nigeria have quite distinct roles and ways of dressing, due to it being a conservative country,” explained Ijewere, “The younger generation isn’t like that. They are blurring the lines between masculinity and femininity.”
