Juliet Ibrahim, Beverly Naya, Lisa Omorodion, Tania Omotayo, Adunni Ade, Taje Prest and Layole Oyatogun strike a powerful pose in a shoot for Project RAW (Respect A Woman) in a bid to raise awareness against domestic violence across Africa. The project which was recently launched by actor and model, Emmanuel Ikubese some few months back is part of the Emmanuel Ikubese Foundation.
The shoot was directed by actress Juliet Ibrahim and this is what she had to say regarding the art behind the shoot.
“The shoot was something I was excited to be part of because it was an avenue to bring to fore what a lot of women go through in silence on a daily basis via domestic abuse. I tried my best to make sure the work has a consistent message that fits in with what Emmanuel is trying to project, hoping that it would give women a strength to speak up and men a spine to man up and stop battering women both emotionally and physically. Kudos to the photographer and makeup artist, working with them made the vision I had as a director so easy to visualize”
The shoot was done at the Le Paris Hotel, Lagos. Here are some shoots form the horrifying looking poses.
