Nigerian-born photographer, Adolphus Opara has been inspiring me with his work for a while, and while I would normally share this on my old decor/inspiration blog, I could not resist sharing his Emissaries of an Iconic Religion series on here. All of the photos are inspiring me for a new project. The saturated colours, the power of each image, the subjects all inspired me to sketch in-flight, and I immediately shared his work on tumblr. For me, this his how inspiration begins, and I'm sure as I flesh-out my ideas I will come back to the images often. How does inspiration begin for you? Image, words, sound? Do share.
More on that project soon, but for now enjoy and do visit Mr. Opara's website to explore his entire collection of amazing photos.
