Icons of the Metropolis

Nigerian based photographer and conceptual artist;Β Ade AdekolaΒ creates a visual story of Lagos and it characters (ICONs) in a collection of montages of street characters found in the mega-city of Lagos Nigeria. He has identified twenty β€œicons”. He could have selected places, wares or objects, but he has focused, almost exclusively, on street people. As he says:Β β€œIcons of a Metropolis” offers a non-judgmental look at 20 character archetypes – they are the ICONS.Β They are a creative force, a self-organizing and self-referentialΒ manifestation of the zenith of urban survival.
