Each year LagosPhoto Festival hosts a variety of workshops, panel discussions, artist talks and portfolio reviews.LagosPhoto Festival is the first international art festival of photography in Nigeria, launched in October 2010. The festival presents photography as it is embodied in the exploration of historical and contemporary issues, the promotion of social programmes, and the reclamation and engagement of public spaces in showcasing contemporary photography.
It is organised by the African Artists’ Foundation (AAF) as part of an ongoing project designed to use art in public spaces, as a medium for increasing societal awareness. LagosPhoto is held annually and features emerging photographers alongside established photographers.
