Bidemi Oloyede is an emerging street and portrait photographer currently based in Toronto, ON., who captures the energy and emotion of people in their natural environment and social landscapes in a documentary style using predominantly black and white film. His impulse documentary style is a reflection of the interaction or inner dialogue between the photographer and the subject. Oloyede is interested and invested in the physicality of film, the historical and chemical context and legacy of image making and the laborious process of traditional darkroom techniques. He seeks to explore the ‘Human Condition’, everyday people and the influences behind how people function in their social-political contexts.
