Potential , 2019

Pluton series is a celebration of young Nigerian creatives and their resilience and strength whilst making, creating and pushing boundaries through their art. From performance artists and activists to dancers, models and filmmakers, each image encapsulates something special about its subject, captured in David’s memorable style.
David says he wanted to create  “a fictional Nigerian Pompeii” which he would populate with “people who are crystallizing within Nigerian society, and leaving a blazing trail in their wake.”

Pluton gets its name from the igneous rock that’s created when hot magma rises to the Earth’s surface and slowly cools, crystallizing. It’s a fitting metaphor for the series, which David shot mainly an hour north of Lagos.

David Uzochukwu

Growing up in Austria, Luxembourg, and Belgium, he delved into self portraiture early on.

Uzochukwu developed a digital practice, focussing on being othered, vulnerability, and the slightly surreal.

Often, his subjects are reflected in - or merge with - the nature that surrounds them. Lone introspection and devotion to something larger than themselves exist simultaneously.

He has collaborated with artists like Little Dragons, FKA twigs and Pharrell, been comissioned by Nike, Dior, and Hermès, and has exhibited at Bozar, Photo Vogue Festival, and Lagos Photo Festival.

He is working towards his first degree in Philosophy at HU Berlin.
