My Picture of The Year 2015 is of this lady keeping the streets of Lagos clean. – @OgbeniAyotunde
Juju Films spent the last 5 years capturing and documenting in digital & analog formats the people, places and landscapes of Nigeria. With natural waterfalls, springs, monoliths, mountains, valleys, lush rain forests and savannah, native animal and plant life, we discovered the hidden dynamic beauty of a people rich in cultural and natural resources.
It has become increasingly difficult within the past couple of years to freely move around Nigeria to capture these amazing images due to terrorism in parts of the country today. This is a problem affecting the ways of life of many ethnic and cultural groups in the country today.
Security considerations have dramatically increased our daily operating expenses. Through this project we came to realize we simply could not disassociate ourselves from the humanitarian issues facing the people we photograph and document.
We seek donations and pledges to offset these cost (no minimum amount requirement).
Thank you kindly for your consideration.

I believe the sun shall rise tomorrow, I believe the rain nourishes the earth. I believe in creation and understand evolution. I believe in the innocence of children. I believe given the chance the youth shall grow. I believe in life.
This is my second entry for picture of the year. I shot this image in Iheaka Village in Enugu State Nigeria. This image i believe captures the full essence of an Igbo mother. The natural and bold beauty of motherhood. Mother naturally passes this essence to her girls. Notice that mother and her girls are dressed in clothes made from the same fabric.
