Isabel Okoro is a Nigerian-born visual artist currently based in Canada. Her work explores the interactions between the motherland and the diaspora, as well as the space between binaries, where new realities can exist. For this project, shot for Atmos Magazine Volume 8: Rhythm, she takes us to an imagined city in Nigeria. Here, she depicts the story of Ré and Ollison, whose journey of love begins beneath the moon. The photos, she says, are a conversation between sound and space, converging and diverging to influence human feeling. “It doesn’t matter how they met – all that matters is that they did. After investigating the spaces they occupy, dance becomes their freedom. The journey of their love begins in those moments – when everything feels possible under the wonderful moon.”
