brad ogbonna diary
NYC based photographer. All photographs are mine. Portfolio: www.bradogbonna.com E: info@bradogbonna.com
One of the few photos that I have of my Grandmother. She was a Fulani woman from Northern Nigeria who practiced Islam. Much like today, romantic relationships between Christians (Igbos) and Muslims (Hausa/Fulanis) in Nigeria were very rare and shunned. 

A few years after my Dad was born, my Grandma, Nnuja Muhummad, and my Grandpa Dennis Ogbonna, ended their relationship due to the pressures of society. My Dad went with my Grandpa back to our homeland in Imo State in Southeastern Nigeria. He never saw or heard from his mother again. 

My Dad died on December 26, 2011. All I have left are photographs and stories.
