“Photography is important because as a Nigerian I observe we forget a lot of things, we forget where we come from,who we are, where we are heading to. We left behind a lot of our history hence why we have a lot of our society with identity problem, everybody is struggling to be someone else, so in order not to forget, I have a passion to remind the society of who we are through my photographs” – August Udoh
