I’m Kureng Dapel from Nigeria. A graduate of University of Jos, 29 years of age, I am a passionate about digital arts based on my skills in photography, arts and theatre. Winner of The Who is who award and the Africans Rising international Award, I use my technical know-how to advance human rights through some of my pictures. Gender Based Violence, Cultural rights and children right are my field of interest.

My life as a photographer started with my father, Mr. Ronald Dapel, unfortunately he passed on before I found my feet in the industry. He was a photographer, so it’s natural to say he passed on those DNA traits to his son.
It was really tough in the beginning. I didn’t think I had any talents or unique qualities that I could develop. I did all sorts of jobs including welding, being a mechanic and even driving a bulldozer
I discovered this beautiful gift in 2008 when I noticed an uncontrollable attraction to a device called a ‘camera.’ Luckily, my very first gear was handed over to me by Pastor Esther Ibanga.
Then, I limited the power of what was in my hands, an eight megapixels Canon until I met late. Lawrence Olalekon. He was the window of opportunity I had. Where others had to pay a fortune to learn, he tutored me and laid that perfect foundation I’ve now built upon.
