Experiencing Interruptions?

Greener Pastures

Deep inside Epe, along the Lagos lagoon, more than 145 villages are tucked away far from the bustling city life. They have been left behind and are now held hostage by the consequences of a race to modernity. Women are giving birth depending on nature only and their children are growing up, waiting for power and education, hoping for the future.

Bolaji Alonge is a Nigerian artist, photographer, actor and journalist from Lagos, Nigeria. Also known as Eyes of a Lagos Boy, with more than a decade of experience in documenting history, looking for beauty where it is least expected.

Alonge’s visual language speaks of the wonders of nature and human exchange, urban culture and searches for historical continuity in a world that is sometimes heavily fractured. His lens exposes contrast and conflict while offering an alternative vision of oneness, order in chaos. He is also a globetrotter who has travelled around the world during the last decade documenting exotic culture and history.
