Photography as a weapon of uncovering

Akinbode Akinbiyi will talk about "Photography as a weapon of uncovering". Uncovering the many layers of prejudice, colonial attitudes, post-colonial stances. The talk will look at non-African views of the "African" from the beginning of the twentieth century till today and of Africans themselves, how they see themselves. He will then go further and show images of Lagos, a work-in-progress that he started in the eighties and still working at. This will conclude the talk attempting to uncover the various layers that subsume photographic visualisation.
