Adama in Wonderland by Akinbode Akinbiyi – Photography Exhibition

11744374-STANDARD

Renowned Nigerian photographer Akinbode Akinbiyi has for some years focused his output on mega-cities, especially those on the African continent, including work on Cairo, Lagos and Kinshasa. The body Adama in Wonderland, was developed during stays in the city in 2012 and 2013. The artist describes the work as ‘a wander through the contested streets of Johannesburg looking for, searching for its essential essence. Extremely fine gold dust floating ever so ephemerally in the evening twilight, down the grid-patterned streets of Downtown, out into the southern suburbs and up and away into the northern counterparts, and in no way forgetting the equally contested streets of the western and eastern suburbs.’
