Andrew Dosunmu: Third World Glamour
Two of my favorite genres to write in are style and travel, and Andrew Dosunmu’s photography straddles both fields impressively. From India to Europe, Southeast Asia to Africa, his stunning portraits and editorials go right into the world’s biggest and most chaotic capitals and pluck out the edgiest, most interesting people and scenes.
I saw an exhibit of his a few years ago in New York, and the global conglomeration of his work is enthralling. Dosunmu is Nigerian, and began his career as a design assistant at the couture house of Yves Saint Laurent. Since then, he’s captured the glamour and regality in the Third World, grit and all.
