???In this captivating editorial by Photographer Paul Ukonu for his Bedroom Series, he features the beauty Daala Oruwari in the ‘IYAWO’ Edition. This is officially the 3rd edition (check www.paulukonu.blogspot.com for previous editions).

 
“Her skin, dark and shiny like the crude oil from her home town. Her faced carved
to fine detail like the masks at her village’s shrine. She is modern, she is ancient.
She is the new African woman, a renaissance of the natural allure of daughters of
Africa.
She toils from dusk to dawn. When she gets home she removes her garments and rolls
on the sheets, her soft body caressing the padded mattress. She wants to sleep, and let
the cool breeze massage her aching parts, but she can’t. One more deed must be done
tonight, pound yam for her husband.”
