Emissaries of an Iconic Religion
I met Adolphus Opara in Ghana when he was selected as an All Star participant in the Twenty Ten project. I got to know him even better when he came to South Africa during the 2010 FIFA World Cup as a member of what we called the Dream Team of journalists who created stories throughout the event. It was clear he had significant potential as a young photographer. Definitely someone to watch. And it has been great to see some of that talent beginning to make an impact.
Based in Lagos, Nigeria, Adolphus has been busy recently. Just last month he launched an innovative exhibition in the Makoko district of Lagos called The Silent Majority curating the work of photography students from workshops they ran in Makoko. Now Adolphus has launched his first solo exhibition. So if you are in Lagos any time from now until April 21, why not go and view it. Details are below. If it is obstructed click on the invitation to see it clearly.
