Lakin Ogunbanwo is a Nigerian born and based photographer who first began practicing his art while studying at Law school in the UK. Initially self taught, he eventually travelled to Paris for professional studies at the Spéos Photography Institute. His work features bold and provocative portraits, as well as fashion, often set against bright colours and Lagos cityscapes. Ogunbano’s series quietly challenge the conservative culture of Nigeria. In 2013 he was profiled by CNN as one of “Africa’s Most Exciting New Photographers”.
