TY Bello Shares Amazing Portrait of Ooni of Ife, Obasijuwade II.


Famed photographer, TY Bello shared never seen before portrait of the late Ooni of Ife, Obasijuwade II today, Friday, August 14th.

TY Bello who recently welcomed a twins says, “the opportunity will always be a blessing to me” after sharing a long storyline alongside some photos from the photoshoot.

    OONI OF IFE: ALWAYS AROUND TOMORROW . I can’t count how many times I’ve had a stranger stop me from making a photograph of them because…. ‘They didn’t want me to capture their spirit… And run away with it’..

    The ‘running away’ part will make a good story for another day but I can ‘ sort of’ see where they are coming from…. I believe in mortality.. That one day we all end our journey on this planet.. I also believe in eternity… You may not all see things exactly the same way I do.. But we can all agree .. That the images that capture our spirits will be around tomorrow.. As the Ooni of ife is laid to rest.. I took out time to look at the portraits I made of him.. It took me right back to that day when I got to serve his royal highness.. Like he was still sitting before me in that room. The opportunity will always be a blessing to me.
