Top Nigerian songstress, Seyi Shay, releases glamorous new photos in a photo editorial called “The Corruption of Eve”.
See singer's stunning photo editorial themed 'The corruption of Eve'
This photo editorial was recently showcased at the 2015 edition of the Lagos Photo Festival among a select iconic photographs that are of symbolic stature in Nigerian music.
This photo editorial is directed by fast rising photographer, Remi Adetiba and was shot at the Lekki conservation Centre, Lagos.
The Corruption of Eve reconstructs the story of the fall of man in a more modern light with Seyi Shay staring as the first woman “Eve”.
Seyi Shay is dressed in a flowy, ethereal gown, whose nude tone closely matches her skin colour to give a less obvious interpretation of Eve’s nudity.
We also witness the dramatic emergence of the serpent, played by a striking male model in a full snakeskin suit, seducing Eve and tempting her with the forbidden fruit.
She is also pictured, dressed in a gorgeous garment with leaf prints/appliques signifying her covering her nakedness.
The photo editorial ends with Eve, having fully accepted her fall from grace; she is seen in a luxury car (ostensibly in the present day), wearing a sexy snake-print dress.
“The Corruption of Eve” features a slide show that tells a strong story with every photo linking to the next like pieces to a puzzle.
The story of "The Corruption of Eve" is on display at Miliki Lounge in Victoria Island, Lagos.
