About

Stephen Obisanya is a documentary photographer whose work is heavily rooted in exploring the foundations of human connection and condition through the lens of family and community. Originally born (1989) in Lagos, Nigeria and currently residing in New York City, much of Obisanya’s work is informed by his desire to reconcile the difference between his two worlds: a cultural identity as an African and a lived experience as a first-generation immigrant in America. 

He has been working on a project Home Will Find Us, about the impact of gentrification on the livelihood of residents in one of New York City's five boroughs.
