LAGOS STUDIO ARCHIVES - 2020
The Lagos Studio Archives consists of thousands of 35mm colour negatives that documents Lagos studio portraiture from the 1980s to 2010. The archive represents a large demographic of Lagos inhabitants showcasing a vast range of emotions from, couples in love to fantasy based projections of the self all played out for the camera.
archive serves as a historical record of Lagos life through a
time of social and technological change, highlighting the style
and humour of everyday Lagosians. Editing of the archive will
begin in early 2018 with plans to launch a book scheduled for
2020 to coincide with 60 years of Nigerian independance.
Lagos Studio Archive is a collaborative project by Ohiri + Kassinen.
