The Syrian and other refugees streaming into Europe since 2015 have roiled its politics and tested its tolerance. But they’re just the latest of many waves of immigrants since World War II. Indians in Britain, Algerians in France, Somalis in Sweden are some of the immigrants who are reshaping the continent. Commissioned by National Geographic Magazine, Robin Hammond travelled through Europe to tell the stories of ‘The New Europeans.’
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.
