About Me


Lawrence Agyei (b. 1990) is a Ghanaian photographer with footprints in Italy, living on Chicago's south side. Through Agyei's use of portraiture, the hidden languages held deep within the body of his subjects find comfort revealing themselves through Agyei's lens. The vibrancy, boldness, the coolness, and subtle textures of his portraits unveiled through Agyei's use of film ensures that their voices will never go unnoticed nor will they be forgotten. And, as long as Agyei has his camera, there will always be a platform for his subjects to speak their truths in the most melodic way. Agyei's photography has been featured in The FaderAppleVSCO, and The New Yorker
