The Eyes of a Lagos Boy photo exhibition, which ended on May 27, brought together stakeholders and admirers of art and photography to exchange views and chart the way forward to encourage young Africans to pick up the camera, travel and make photography a career.


The exhibition, which was convened by Bolaji Alonge, Lagos-born photographer and University of Lagos graduate of mass communication, held at Freedom Park, Lagos.

The photo exhibition showcased pictures of everyday life, colours and societal concerns from Nigeria, Egypt, The Netherlands, Oman, Germany, India, Turkey, Sweden and Underwater.

“For me, the response from young photographers who turned up in large numbers and were inspired means a lot and quite encouraging,” the actor turned photographer said.


Nobel laureate Wole Soyinka, who was among the guests at the exhibition, went through all 27 photos and suggested that one will be good for his book.

“The aim is to take attendees around Nigeria and the world through the eyes of a Lagos Boy,” Alonge had said before the exhibition.
