In Yoruba, a Niger-Congo language mainly spoken in southwestern Nigeria and parts of neighboring countries, the term for a ‘Water Drop’ is ‘Omi Tutu.’ Here, ‘Omi’ means ‘water,’ and ‘Tutu’ stands for ‘cool’ or ‘cold,’ representing a single droplet. The language is known for its richness in idioms, proverbs, and specialized terminology, often imbued with cultural or spiritual significance. For the concept of ‘Water Drop Collision,’ the Yoruba expression is ‘Iṣẹju omi ti o foju kanra,’ which translates to an occurrence where water droplets collide. To encapsulate the essence of my Water Drop Collision Photography, I’ve coined the term ‘Omi Tutu Photography.
