Wavy : Words used to describe Jennifer Ejoke, better known in Naija’s hippie scene simply as ‘ Wavy (The creator)‘. She wears many hats, literally and figuratively as a Photographer, Film-maker, Visual artist, style influencer and owner of the clothing line ‘Aziz’ and as of last week, she dropped a single titled ‘HIGH’, a smart play on words as it simultaneously stands for ‘Her In Greater Heights’ and also describes her state of mind.
[blockquote align=”none” author=”Wavy”]“It’s almost like being a paparazzi and you have to know what you want to capture and capture it. I is a different experience, it’s a different vibe when you are shooting. The thrill of having to change settings while someone is performing is pretty awesome. It’s a pretty different experience.”[/blockquote]
What is it like being embedded in Olamide’s entourage during his tour:
“It’s almost like being a paparazzi and you have to know what you want to capture and capture it. I is a different experience, it’s a different vibe when you are shooting. The thrill of having to change settings while someone is performing is pretty awesome. It’s a pretty different experience.”
On people who do not believe photography is an art form:
“Why not? I see everything as art. I think it’s crazy for people to feel photography is not art.”
Your personal style and how often do you get the side-eye from people who wonder whether she’s a boy or a girl.
“All the time, especially since I came to Nigeria. I don’t even know why they look anymore. I just smile or confront them, ask if they are looking for something.”
About her influences she said
“To be honest I never really studied any famous or great photographers. I never had any role models, because literally I just picked up a camera and decided I wanted to shoot but I have being inspired by my friends.”
Lastly, on the over-dependence of photographers on photo manipulation software she said:
“It’s kind of 50/50 because sometimes there are pictures you take and it doesn’t come together until you are done editing. You should do most of your work pre-edited and the rest after editing.”
