Social Suffocation

Olu Osinoiki⁣⁣, Olumedia

This photographic commission explores the relationship between secrecy and ignorance. With support from SPIN, the Martin Parr Foundation, and Rising Arts Agency, this photographic series seeks to explore: what secrecy mean to individuals; who keeps secrets; what is ignorance; and, how might secrecy and ignorance be interconnected? In response to these questions, this project has produced a series of postcards made available in the Martin Parr Foundation gallery, as well as having led to the creation of the short film, Digital Diet.
