All photographs featured in this article are from the Street Photography in Nigeria series by Caleb Ishaya Oseshi. All photos are posted here with his permission.

Whenever I’m not traveling, or not feeling inspired enough to take new street photographs, I make it a point to look for inspirations from fellow street photographers online in order to psych myself up and motivate me to create something more and see more places to photograph. Moreover, this website has given me a couple of opportunities to connect with fellow street photographers.


One day, I randomly received an email from a fellow photographer saying that he was really inspired with my work. He was also happy to share some of his photographs to me, which I really find very interesting and unique enough to tell stories from the streets of his home country in Nigeria. He is Caleb Ishaya Oseshi.
