Born and raised in New York, Abigail Ekue is interested in the city and its various characters. As such, her work holds a mirror to clients and sitters, capturing nuances of human behaviour and the intimate everyday.
In her nude portraits, Ekue promotes body positivity, addressing the male and female gaze, whilst creating intimate, deeply human moments of vulnerability.
Ekue’s current personal project is She Rides, a female biker portrait series.
