Editors' Comment

At a time when most of us are confined to our homes, Bidemi’s photos provide a perfect respite. Throughout the 4 Chapters of the online exhibition we are reminded of the necessity and vitality of community gatherings and the importance of sharing of social space. I enjoyed reading about the emerging artist’s approach as I looked through the online galleries. —Yaniya Lee, Features Editor
