Abraham Oghobase

Nigerian, born 1979

Abraham Oghobase’s documentary and photojournalistic work captures the dynamism of life in contemporary Nigeria. Born and based in Lagos, Oghboase typically works in series, constructing photographic narratives around the economy, urbanism, and the speed of change in his city. In one body of work, Oghbobase turned his camera to the walls of Nigerian buildings, photographing the graffiti-like guerilla advertising that appears across urban settings. The photographs call attention to Lagos’s role as an economic capital of both Nigeria and Africa while also highlighting a homegrown scheme of marketing created by a proliferating group of aspiring entrepreneurs who resist the corporate and international money entering the country.
