Bayo Omoboriowo is a Nigerian photojournalist, and documentary photographer. The Chief Official photographer for President Muhammad Buhari during an interview with Farabale Weekly a few days back at his book reading, he shared some information on what impact his book ‘Buhari – A New Beginning’ would have on Nigerians and the world.
What impact do you think this photo book would have on Nigerians and the world at large?
I think for me it’s information basically, I don’t want to stretch it more than that. We don’t document for history, I believe this book should be something that we would keep for history. I never knew so much about Buhari and the world is changing, people are moved by what they see now much more that what they read.This is a material for the future whereby the future generation can make reference to, our children should be able to look and say he was Buhari, and through images they should be able to say who a Buhari was, simple. So it’s for a reference material, a tool for communication and something that people can always look back to. You see people saying that I am taking them through the life of the presidency with this book.
