Last two weeks, we made a call for entry to feature young photographers on Black Boy Review with the 10 best photos they would capture in the just concluded Owerri Photo Walk, where people of same mind gather and select routes to take pictures of Owerri and tell their own stories according to the views they like.
Therefore, we have selected 3 photographers, one of them being Oluebube Okafor. The pictures here belongs to her. And we did a short interview on her. We will put up the works of the others soon.
