MODERN MIX I

Okhai Ojeikere
There are hundreds of ethnic groups in Nigeria,
each with its own language and traditions.
Among other things which are part of these
traditions are various hairstyles.
These are determined by the social position
of the family, and artistic talent of the hair stylist.
Among them there are specials hairstyles
for ceremonies such as circumcisions,
a woman becoming an adult, or the celebration
of a marriage.Today is difficult to trace the background
of certain hairstyles because various ethnic
groups have mixed together, and adapt to modern
culture. Many hairstyles have died out,taking their
secrets to the grave with them.
Since 1968 Ojeikere (b. Nigeria 1930)has been making
photographs of various hairstyles he sees on the street,
at work or at celebrations.He always asks his
models where the hairstyle they are wearing are
come from,what its meaning is,its name,
and its history.In 1961 Ojeikere became the studio
photographer for the first African television station.
He opened his own studio in 1975,Foto Ojeikere.
During an art festival in 1968 he decided to begin
photographing Nigerian cultural life.Since then
he has travelled through the contry in search
of subjects.It was that same year he also began
his "hairstyles"series.
