    She Moved to the City - Editorial

    |A beautiful novel dealing with themes of colonialism, poverty and hardship, created into a fierce editorial with Nyorh Agwe Jewelry.

    Featuring Nyorh Agwe jewelry, the theme for “She Moved to the City” is taken from a work by Cameroonian author Eza Boto entitled “Ville Cruelle”.

    The main character has no money to pay his love’s dowry, so he decides to sell coco in the city to earn money. The novel deals with interesting themes of colonialism, poverty and hardship. This shoot is an American take on Boto’s story - how creatives moving to NYC have similar, but more modern, problems finding work and a means of living.
