‘Eyes of a Lagos Boy’: Alonge to hold photo exhibition at Freedom Park

After spending the past five years taking photographs around the world from mountain tops, cities, forests, nature and undersea, Bolaji Alonge has returned home – to Lagos, Nigeria, to share his exploits. With a portfolio of over fifty thousand photos, the photographer seeks to share the beautiful moments he’s captured with Nigerians at an exhibition tagged ‘Eyes of a Lagos Boy’. The photo exhibition, he says, “intends to invoke the spirit of the adventurer and wanderlust in Nigerians and humanity as a whole, to encourage those that have not, do not or cannot travel and take photos for whichever reason”. ‘Eyes Of A Lagos Boy’ will kick off at Freedom Park, Lagos, from May 20-27. “The images to be displayed are our everyday happenings and some little things people sometimes do not pay so much attention to. Photos on the Exhibition are open to interested buyers at reasonable rates,” says Alonge. The photo exhibition will showcase 25 framed photos from Western Europe, the Middle East, India, Russia and many other countries.
