My name is Daniella Almona and I am a photographer and storyteller from Nigeria who uses portraiture as a form of connection. I am dedicated to creating a visual archive of my ever-evolving community and giving people like me the space to reclaim agency over their identities. I am intrigued by color theory and continue to explore themes of Blackness, femininity, and joy in my portrait and documentary work using both analog and digital photographic methods.

I graduated from the Savannah College of Art and Design with a BFA in Photography and a minor in Advertising Art Direction (2022) and I am a member of Black Women Photographers, The Luupe, and Diversify Photo (UpNext).

I spent the last five years in Georgia (USA), but I am currently based in Lagos (Nigeria).
