Akinbiyi’s approach to photographing cities has always remained the same – he walks around megacities such as Lagos, Cairo or Brasilia with a medium-format camera. Akinbode Akinbiyi has also been a mentor to some members of recent photography collectives such as DOF and Black Box. He shares with them a special interest in the informal arrangements and structures that seem to constitute cities such as Lagos.
