My name is Logo Oluwamuyiwa, I am a Photographer/filmmaker who works predominantly via Black & White Photography. My approach also revolves around conceptual and documentary style photography.
My interest in photography is to train my eye and the camera to be a shrewd observer of the human carnival by capturing photographic narratives from perspectives that are often considered banal overlooked, ignored and taken for granted by exposing nuances that resonates with the audience enough to hone a paradigm shift on how the subject captured would have been initially perceived.
My recent and major work is titled “Monochrome Lagos”, which can be seen as a visual digital archive showing a unique reflection of the city of Lagos - an expose of its idiosyncrasies and aesthetics.
I set out to Photograph Lagos seeking to capture what I often refer to as the mystic of the city, the theatrical arrangement of almost everything, the architecture, the poetic juxtapositions of its resident and how they relate with the city and vice versa –Most importantly seeking the beauty in her forms, lines, patterns, texture by stripping the city of one of the most obvious feature “Color“.
The project is largely showcased via virtual platforms (Tumblr & Instagram) to serve as digital archival reference to the city due to the volume of work and also to meet halfway the residents whom have embraced the tech revolution.
The ultimate object of the project is to hone a paradigm shift in how the city is perceived and appreciated by a global audience and especially the residents by encouraging a conscious observation of their surroundings in a city where everything is constantly in a rush.
I live and work in Lagos, Nigeria and also a member of the Centre for Contemporary Arts, Nigeria.
