Photographer, Logor Shows Us How Beautiful Lagos Is In Monochrome


By visually asking, If I strip Lagos of the colour, what will I find? –Logor

Photographer, Logor asked himself this question and has since then dared to do the unconventional by taking pictures of the cosmopolitan city of Lagos in purely black and white. He says that Lagos is to him what New York is to photographers like Gary Winnongrand, Robert Frank, Joel Meyerowitz and Robert Stanton of the “Humans of New York”.

Monochrome Lagos presents an alternative visual vocabulary through which to comprehend this city, one that strips Lagos down to its component parts, as an encounter between the individual and the built environment.

Here are pictures of Lagos, as you’ve never seen it before taken by the talented Logor.
