With the same great love for capturing the moment through the moving image as for distilling the essence in a single frame, cinematographer/ photographer Henry Adebonojo is “happiest when I am making pictures.”…
Shooting the likes of the late Gordon Parks, (for his Emmy-nominated work on Half Past Autumn: The Life and Works of Gordon Parks) George Clooney, Chuck D, Marisa Tomei, Dave Chappelle and the POTUS, Barack Obama, he’s cut a wide swath across the mediums of music videos, commercials, promos, documentaries and short films. The one position which has remained elusive is the Director of Photography spot on a feature film, but he’s up for the challenge, and looks forward to its inevitable occurence.
In an interview about his work with SLAMjamz.com, Henry said: “I have always been interested in film and photography that revolves around the human face and character features. I have been inspired by travels around the world to see beauty and interest in every face and find a way to interpret that.” Indeed. And in this collection of afrosensual portraits that make only a small part of his well-rounded body of works, Henry explores the beauty and glamour of passion in his creative captures of expression.
