During his tragically brief six-year career, Rotimi Fani-Kayode produced a complex body of photographic work, exploring themes of race, sexuality, spirituality, and the self. His masterfully staged and crafted portraits, stand as powerful, resolutely ambiguous, visual statements. Fani-Kayode was born in Lagos, Nigeria to a prominent Yorùbá family before moving to England following the outbreak of civil war. He later studied in the USA, before settling permanently in London where he lived and worked until his untimely death in 1989. At the core of Fani-Kayode's work is an important emphasis on the cultural politics of difference. A prominent figure in the Black British art scene, he was one of the first chairs of Autograph and a founding signatory in 1988.
