ABOUT

Grace Bukunmi is a Nigerian Photographer, Stylist, and Art Director that works between Los Angeles and New York City.

Originally a student of International Relations, Grace honed in on her artistry during college where she was able to simultaneously explore fashion, photography, design and body politics while being imbued by foreign affairs.

After living for many years in Chicago, Grace relocated to Los Angeles to volunteer as a City Year Community Corps Member followed by her first postcollegiate position as a Digital Content Director.

Following her brief stint in the corporate world, Bukunmi  launched her freelance photography career with commissioned work from publications including Elle  and Highsnobiety while growing a styling portfolio that includes musicians Martin Garrix and Ashanti & brands such as Nike and Finishline.

Most recently, her photoshoots, artwork, interviews and features can be found on the web pages of Vogue,  Teen Vogue, Popsugar, Complex, Galore, Ladygunn, Refinery29, AfroPunk, NY Times and The Cut or stowed within the visual archives at brands such as VSCO, Reebok Adidas, Motorola Solutions and Diesel.

She has also provided multi-platform social coverage at several major music and art festivals for both publishers and brands. Her interviews for both types of clients range from artists such as Migos and Joey Badass to artists such as Sean Paul and Travis Scott.

Her most recent work centers around the female gaze and identities of otherness. To achieve such means, she’s teamed up with organizations such as Unity in Color, Nasty Women Portraits and Magic in Her Melanin to share stories of inclusivity and solidarity. Highlighting both themes via poignant portrait series.

The thread that ties all of Bukunmi’s work together is her fascination with finding beauty and light in every crevice of humanity and sharing that light for all the world to see.
