Yagazie’s project is said to, “provoke folkloric connotations through her photographic project titled “Another Tale By Moonlight.””

A self-taught photographer who started photography in early 2015, Yagazie has since been commissioned by the likes of the New York Times and Vogue.

Andy Saunders, Senior Vice President, Creative Content at Getty Images says they “are delighted to work with this diverse group of emerging photographers and in turn, help enable their creative vision.”

Thanks to the funds, I'll finally have some small piece of mind to set time aside to put form to the things in my head lol. Congratulations to the rest of the recipients (it was great to see a familiar name on the list representing Kenya @findingneema 💕😘)! Ready for the challenge and looking forward to seeing how we make use of this opportunity to tell more of our necessary stories <3 . Image from my “Tinko Tinko” piece.
