The International Photo Festival - Lagosphoto announces its first geographical expansion across Benin and Lagos, igniting hopeful visions of change.

Overview

Curated by AAF’s founder and director Azu Nwagbogu, and East Wing Artistic Director (Dubai, UAE) Peggy Sue Amison, the 14th edition of the international photography festival will foster a fellowship of dynamic spiritual change and rebirthing of the unimaginable through the theme ‘Ground State – Fellowship Within the Uncanny.’ The theme explores the present moment and envision ways to restore, repair and restitute the mysteries of histories that are crucial for our survival.

This year's edition marks the first time in its history that the event will be held beyond Lagos, extending to Cotonou, Ouidah, and Port-Novo in Benin. This geographical expansion offers a wider audience the opportunity to engage with the powerful works of talented photographers, challenging our own complicity in a culture of desire founded on consumption.

Through an extensive program of exhibitions, workshops, screenings and largescale outdoor installations, the festival promotes education and reclaim public spaces, engaging local and global audiences with the continent’s historical and contemporary stories narrated through photography.
