A Look At LagosPhoto: 'The Megacity and the Non-City'

The 4th edition of LagosPhoto, themed 'The Megacity and the Non-City,' marked another stunning series for Nigeria's only international photo festival.

This weekend marks the end of the stunning fourth edition of LagosPhoto, Nigeria's first and only international arts festival of photography. The monthlong program featured over fifty photographers spanning fifteen countries, including OKA favorites Hauwa R. Mukan (Nigeria), Cyrus Kabiru (Kenya), Samuel Fosso (Cameroon), Kudzanai Chiurai (Zimbabwe), Obi Nwokedi (Nigeria), and Lakin Ogunbanwo (Nigeria). This year's theme, The Megacity and the Non-City, looked at Africa's expanding urban landscape, replete with contradictions, grey areas, and sites of dispute. Especially monumental was the participation of self-portrait megastar Samuel Fosso- his first time exhibiting in the country he grew up in. With The Emperor of Africa, which made its premiere at LagosPhoto, the many faced photographer posed as Mao Zedong for a five photo interpretation of Sino-African relations. Above we showcase some incredible (really incredible) photos from this year's series. For more from LagosPhoto head here.
