Kene Nwatu’s Forms of Life is a study of human evolution captured in startling black
and white. With an exceptional use of space and a stunning merger of man and
wood, Kene tells a story of the journey of man, our trials and our learning, even till
our period of rest, just before death. The judicious use of space isn’t just limited to
the man and the wood upon which he kneels as it extends to the props that were
also carefully chosen to fit the narrative, thus further ensuring that the story in the
series of photographs is not lost to minimalism of it all.
