Yagazie Emezi is a multi-disciplinary artist and documentary photographer from Aba, Nigeria. She studied cultural anthropology and African studies in the United States before returning to her native country as a visual curator for Bialere, a digital platform that showcases young African creatives.

On a recent trip to Morocco, she captured the changing city with its ancient walls and traditional mosques against more modern, brightly painted corridors. Emezi is currently covering education for at-risk girls in Liberia alongside her personal project on scars and intimacy.
