Meet the artist.
Ibidola Sogbesan also known as Dola Posh, is a visual artist and storyteller based in Hertfordshire, England.
In 2018, she relocated from Nigeria to London to continue furthering her career. Currently, her work focuses on portraiture, lifestyle photography, and personal visual narratives through self-portraiture.
Making photographs is one of her greatest joys;
Dola works from the landscape of her imagination and focuses on telling the stories of everyday life.
As a black Yoruba woman, she finds inspiration in nature and her culture and tradition.
She loves to share her ideas with artists and has created workshops teaching photography to groups such as the General Electric Lagos garage and other young photographers.
Dola Posh is dedicated to photography and believes in growing creativity in people’s hearts because it is genuinely what makes life beautiful.
When she is not with her Camera, she explores life, eats pasta, writes, creates props, curates ideas, or spends time with her family, husband, and child.
