By now you most likely know Oluwamuyiwa Logor, a Lagos photographer. If you don’t know him, you have the chance to do so at his “Monochrome Project” coming up this weekend, 8th of September 2018.
The “Monochrome Project” is an open discussion about photography and experimentation. The discussion venue is at Red Door Gallery at 51, Bishop Oluwole Street, Victoria Island, Lagos.
Logor has been photographing Lagos for close to eight years now. His project, “Monochrome Lagos” dedicated entirely to archiving the city has reached critical and intellectual acclaim. Logor’s work does not end at documentary alone.
He has created work that are both experimental and boundary pushing.
“This experimentation with the pallete of Black and White and seeking literature from the imagery is a process i have tinkered with since 2013,” Logor said of his approach to photography.
The conversations going on about photography in Nigeria are still inadequate. This is why “Monochrome Project” is a welcome development.
“I wonder what questions you might have in your own visual art practice or simple curiosity regarding photographs or the practice of the craft and many more that we can all rub minds about.”
Visit Red Door Gallery in Lagos this Saturday and join the conversation.
Discussions starts from 4pm to 6pm.
