Lagos by Night

After dark images capture the allure of Lagos at night displaying a mystic labyrinth of beauty and the unknown. Familiar landmarks are transformed into ethereal compositions; the mundane night lights become an integral part of the scene conveying a serene burst of vivid colour. As the sun goes down on the city a different kind of beauty is revealed, where temporary structures take their place as landmarks; street, vehicle and artificial lights make their bid to become stars with each giving off its own unique colour, turning the mundane to the ethereal. The images in this series are captured with patience and composed to reveal a Lagos that is enchanting, barely noticed and rarely seen.

FINISH: DIASEC mounting –
Diasec is a method of preservation of photographic images. The mounting process uses no glue instead it utilises a special liquid chemical to create adhesion between the three components in the composite. The face of the image adheres chemically to the back of a transparent Plexiglas and the image back to a rigid aluminum sheet. The process ensures the absence of dust particles or air bubbles with no traces of glue. The front face of the plexiglas filters ultraviolet light and avoids discoloration of the image. The final artwork is a guaranteed Museum quality finish with image longevity of over 70 years.
