Emeka Ebeniro: Closer to Lagos

Emeka Ebeniro is a young photographer from Nigeria. Besides working in an advertising agency, he loves his work as a documentary photographer, especially in Lagos. His series is about an enormous fire in Lagos. 30 houses got burned and luckily nobody died. The houses were made of wood. The work got the attention of the African Artist' Foundation. Last year he participated in workshops as a course and he took the bold step to dedicate his time more to documentary photography. "I am very proud my work got selected. I am learning a lot here. The work of the other photographers is inspiring. I want to invest more in my documentary work. There is still so much to do.'
