BOP CONFERENCE X  THE WHITESPACE
PHOTOGRAPHY COMPETITION

Everywhere you go in Nigeria, this is the common phrase of the time. A country struggling with its desires for the shiny flash and sleek lines of 21st-century modernity, glimpsed through Instagram and cable tv, juxtaposed with the reality ‘on the ground’ – limited or failing infrastructure and a physical environment totally frayed at the edges.
A city like Lagos has always striven to expand towards the new instead of regenerating the old. In its wake, we are left with hollowed out infrastructure, abandoned building entire industrial zones become eerie dilapidated ghost towns. Whatever happened to Tinapa?

We shape our narratives by first understanding our current and past states of mind, documenting our realities to inform the framework of our future dreams. So we can hopefully move from a ‘managed’ state ‘ to a state of ‘considered engagement’

This series asks photographers to document the realities of these spaces left behind, whose empty corridors and broken windows tell the real story of the things we aspire.

Theme: SHAPING THE NIGERIAN NARRATIVE
“Looking at the Development and neglect of industries across the Country”.

NOTE: All works are to be submitted no later 11 pm on April 15th with a short (max100 words) description and a body of work in a PDF format(max 5 photographs taken on digital or film camera).
SUBMIT TO: submission@businessof photography.net.
