Ty Bello’s Take On: Deola Sagoe – The Spirit Of Freedom

My portraits of @deola_by_deolasagoe are on the cover of today’s @thisdaystyle . You should go out and get this one . Her interview is amazing .

I remember telling her over the phone the images I had of her in my head. I described the movements and fringe details . This amazing woman just went ahead- sketched her interpretation of what I had described and produced some pieces for the shoot.

imageMore importantly she brought way more than the freedom and the spirit I had described.


I can shout it from the mountaintop- Deola Sagoe is the most amazing subject a photographer can ask for!


She connects so uniquely! Her beauty runs deep and she’s understand what it means to be truly free. I still can’t believe this woman just turned 50.
