bénédicte kurzen at lagos photo festival

'Shine ur Eye', a collaboration between Bénédicte Kurzen and Robin Maddock, was in show at Lagos Photo Festival. 


'Shine ur Eye' brings together and explores their recent work in Nigeria as well as using images from the National Museum archive. The show's form echoes the porosity between reality and fiction which shapes Nigerian daily life.


Playfulness, oral traditions, politics, the enormous power of the church fuelled by an irrepressible will to survive, are the threads of a complex weave which ‘Shine ur eye’ unites in documentary and more fictional pictures.
