A Nigerian photographer posted a photo of a five-year-old girl, Jar, and received as many likes as he had ever collected.
The man’s subscribers unanimously considered the girl the most beautiful in the world, but this did not last long. Soon the publication was attacked by enemies.
Nigerian photographer Mof Bamuiva works in the country’s largest city, Lagos. The artist takes lifestyle photos and does photo shoots at weddings, and posts the resulting, professionally executed photo portraits of fellow countrymen on his Instagram page.
At the end of July, one of the heroines of the Bamuiwa shooting was a five-year-old girl, Jar Iyalaha. In the short time of the photo shoot, she charmed the man so much that he hastened to publish her photo. In the description, Bamuiva noted that the girl is an ordinary person, although she looks more like an angel.
The photographer explained that he deliberately made the girl visually older. According to him, from a small model he wanted to make both an adult and a small one, and therefore attracted stylists, makeup artists and hairdressers to work with Jar.
“I wanted to depict her childhood and her adult life, so that she remains timeless. I could make her smile, make her laugh out loud, but I put her in a natural pose so the viewer could see the world through her eyes, because she comes off as an adult. »
Bamuiva subscribers were captivated by the photo at first sight. Within days, three identical photos of Jar garnered 34,000 total likes, and that’s an all-time high for a male account. In the end, she was awarded the title of the most beautiful little one in the world of users.
But the period of unconditional sympathy did not last long. Soon haters came on instagram men who accused Bamuiva of exploiting the labor of the little ones and mistreating the little ones. After all, we all understand how difficult modeling can be.
The perfect skin of the girl in the photo, her huge eyes and impressive hairstyle also became an occasion for commentators to criticize the work of the photographer.
“Makeup and fake hair don’t make a person beautiful. They just make it look fake. “She looks Photoshopped!” Especially his eyes.
