Dis Lagos Life


Dis Lagos Life is an exhibition of photographs and digital collage by Amanda Iheme, Ayanfe Olarinde, Nelly Ating, Oluwamuyiwa Logo, Omoregie Osakpolor, and Somi Nwandu, exposing the pulsating heartbeat of an unforgiving megacity through the lens of six contemporary artists, who have lived, breathed, and found meaning by exploring the complex, multi-layered history, memory, identity, rhythm, color and vibe of Lagos, from the inside out. It gives us an insiders’ perspective, through the bold images of talented photographers, intent on interrogating, informing, and advocating for the greater good of this fascinating megacity.

From photos of historical buildings, to the daily struggles of transient communities, to the effects of censorship on the minds of our youth, juxtaposed against the beautiful pattern and repetition of our organic and built environments, this exhibition touches on the complex pressure of life in Lagos while beckoning us to grapple more honestly, with what must change.
