Ojeikere won quite some fame with his images of the intricate hairdo’s of Nigerian women. The intention was after his death to publish a comprehensive catalogue of all his work. Not only to reveal the broadness of his oeuvre, but also to set a standard for the reproduction of his work. Ojeikere died in 2014 after a successful career of almost 55 years. He started photographing Nigerian hairstyles in 1968. This would become his biggest project. It is estimated that in the end he printed about a thousand pictures of different African women hairstyles. Ojeikere started with photography in a time where camera's weren't a common good in Nigeria and where seen as a luxury good. For him to start with photography was highly unusual.
