Artist of the Week-Lola Akinmade

Lola Akinmade originally attracted my attention with this 100X100 pixel entry for The Grid:
This delightful woman takes earthy, emotional, and stunningly beautiful photography from her travels around the globe. Her website is as down to earth and beautiful as she is. The muted, earth colors, and simple design are an immediate tell of her style in general. See?
After all my attention and focus lately on international travel, and exchange students, this site really appeals to me, and her photojournalism hits home. Her photography makes the everyday life of her subjects convey a beauty and story well beyond the image that is captured in the moment. Each subject has a story, an emotion, that shines through and captures the hearts of the viewer. Here is a small sample, from her trip to Nigeria in 2007:
I can't help but love this artist and her work!! Go check it out for yourself!
