George Osodi, a veteran photojournalist from Nigeria, is a master of his craft. The Lagos-based artist has spent a significant amount of time on the African continent documenting the social and economic struggles of the continent’s native population, earning the respect of publications such as The New York Times, Time, The Guardian, The Telegraph, USA Today, and the International Herald Tribune. It’s not a bad collection of international newspapers. When he’s not recording his country’s economic trajectory, he’s busy cataloging its social structure, particularly its peculiar monarchy. He has recently taken to his Instagram page to share old but timeless photos taken as far back as 2000. Here are some of his most beloved works.
