Nigerian photographer's romantic visions of Lagos

Photographer re-envisions his hometown using light and photographic installations.

Nigerian photographer Logo Oluwamuyiwa “Logor” Adeyemi's recent collection, Down The Rabbit Hole is an alternative romantic approach to the every day. A filmmaker and photographer, Logor works with a monochromatic palette for his light and photographic installations. Focussing on binaries, he takes an image from its busy, noisy reality to a calm and serene interpretation.

His new collection, Down The Rabbit Hole, reimagines Lagos, Nigeria's largest city. It reinterprets the way the city is presented to local and international audiences. It also changes the way audiences interact with the sprawling metropolis. He aims to encourage locals to appreciate the landscape by looking at it as something beautiful rather than everyday surroundings. The exhibition will also include images from his previous collections, including Monochrome Lagos.

This will be Logor's debut exhibition with ALARA Art, and his first time being part of their emerging artists series. His work will be displayed at ALARA Art in Lagos from 19 May till 18 June 2016.
