Robin Hammond’s ‘My Lagos’ introduces us to the colour, energy and chaos of Africa’s largest city. Full bleed colour photographs take us on a journey through bustling Lagos streets and into the homes of the rich, poor, and rising middle class. ‘My Lagos’ opens our eyes to an Africa rarely seen in western media.
