Obi Nwokedi is a London based Nigerian commercial photographer who focuses primarily on portraits and weddings. In his series entitled The Black Barbie Traditional Wedding, Nwokedi recreates a traditional Yoruba wedding using black barbie dolls. His compositions for the shoot are based on actual images created from real weddings he has photographed. For this series, Nwokedi built a mini studio, then strung the dolls up like puppets for each shoot. He then positioned mini led torches to serve as studio lights.
