The Unseen City [A Visual Story]

The city of Lagos, Nigeria is a city sprawling with people from all corners of the country struggling in unison towards a common goal; Subsistence. These pictures are a result of a daring unique experience with my camera and a different perspective of the city. Set in Yaba, Lagos, it depicts a City “Wet and Alive”, a spirit not broken, a restive resolve of the people to make it no matter the odds. Please Like, Share and dont forget to leave comments.
