Meet Fuji, The 3-Year-Old Photographer Who Will Steal Your Heart (PHOTOS)
Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on July 30, 2013
Nigerian photographer Onafujiri “Fuji” Remet made a name for himself earlier this summer when his work was showcased in a Lagos exhibition.
Aside from his curious eye and ability to capture the color and motion of Nigerian street life, Remet received attention for his miniature stature — he is three years old after all.
Yes, you read that right. Little Fuji learned to man a Sony SLR before most of us could spell our names. His photos capture everything from street vendors to family portraits, from an unusually pint-sized vantage point.
Fuji’s early initiation to the art world can be attributed to his creative family. His father and two older sisters are artists as well. At present, the ambitious young photographer has 3,000 images to his name, according to Visual News. Not bad for a toddler, but Remet’s father has even bigger hopes for his budding child prodigy.
Although Fuji may be one of the youngest artists we’ve featured on The Huffington Post Arts&Culture page, he is certainly not the only youngun to explore his creative side. Six-year-old Shorya Mahanot shows a striking resemblance to a young Jackson Pollock while eleven-year-old Autumn de Forest works in a pop art state of mind.
