Lakin Ogunbanwo, ‘Standing Man (Clothed/Nude)’
This young photographer has emerged from Nigeria’s burgeoning advertising and fashion industries, fusing a pop aesthetic with classic studio performance to create a disturbing visual vocabulary. Playing with complex codes of gender, the body Africaine, taboos and fashion iconography, he creates images that are visually challenging and moving. http://str8talkchronicles.com/this-is-my-africa-how-continents-young-photographers-have-reclaimed-lens-from-the-west
