“A popular photographer once said: ‘To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place‘,” says Bolaji Alonge, a Lagos-born photographer.
The mass communication graduate of the University of Lagos who has spent the last five years capturing the beauty of nature in different cities around the world desires for people to experience this thought-provoking feeling.
He intends to achieve this through a photo exhibition titled ‘The Eyes of a Lagos Boy’ organised by his entertainment company, Awefirm Resources Limited.
Holding at the historical Freedom Park, Broad Street, Lagos from May 20 to May 27, the photo-exhibition according to him, will “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”.
“The aim is to take attendees around Nigeria and the world through the eyes of a Lagos Boy,” he said.
The actor-turned-photographer said that the exhibition will showcase 25 framed photos from Western Europe, Russia and more from his global travels.
With the Lagos at 50 festivity ongoing, the event, he said, comes at a near-perfect time to join in the celebration of the heritage of the centre of excellence.
