BUKI KOSHONI

Photographer + Filmmaker + Writer

London, U.K


A visual storyteller seeking moments of truth, Buki Koshoni navigates the worlds of both commercial and fine art photography.

An award winning portrait photographer, his portraiture has appeared in some of the world’s most highly respected publications, includingVanity Fair, The Sunday Times Magazine, The Review Magazine, FHM, The Independent and The British Journal of Photography. He’s shot advertising campaigns for, Panache Lingerie, JD Sports and OKUN Beachwear.

As a commercial filmmaker, he’s produced films for Adidas, Sony Music, BMG Music, Universal Records, and FHM.

As a fine art photographer, the love for fashion, film and the human form is evident in Koshoni’s artwork, which interrogates identity, personality and the body aesthetic. Taking an intimate approach to his subjects, his imagery celebrates personal narratives whilst creating sensual images that draw the audience into his visual journey. His work explores the notion of self narrative, through the visual construction and deconstruction of identity perception.

Koshoni takes a compelling and humanistic approach to his subjects, resulting in a unique exploration of both condition & culture.

In addition to commissions for some of the worlds leading publications he has exhibited both nationally and internationally, most notably, as a Taylor Wessing Portrait finalist with the National Portrait Gallery, marking his status as a world-class portrait photographer & as a Gold Medal winner with GOSEE Berlin.


“The subject of personal identity has always been an ongoing conversation in my personal life and through photography, I’, able to capture and explore this dialogue. I like to shoot narrative portraits, placing people in costumes and situations that either compliment, validate, or disassemble, their public or personal persona.”

-Buki Koshoni


“…photography has long become a part of our everyday lives– shot in a sexy studio, nearly lifeless in the streets, or even uber-elaborately staged outdoors in the wilderness. That is why Lagos-born and London-resident Buki Koshoni took home the prize as the perfect representative of our times. His works are young, sexy, fast, hard, tender – whether in photo or film.”
