Michaelis alumni, Nobokho Nqaba has been selected for Lagos Photo Festival 2015
In 2010 Lagos Photo Festival launched as the first and only international photography festival in Nigeria, Africa’s booming economic centre. Over the course of a month the festival creates a platform for exhibition and discussion of the African design.
The sixth edition of Lagos Photo Festival Designing Futures, welcomes 22 international artists exploring identity, ecology and culture. As the opening of the festival quickly approaches on 24 October we interview each of the photographers to gain some understanding of their inspirations behind their works.
We interview South African artist, Nobukho Nqaba, graduate of Michaelis School of Fine Art (UCT) and 2012 winner of the prestigious Tierney Fellowship award, who is currently a practicing artist and teacher in Cape Town. Nobukho’s work titled Umaskhenkethe likhaya lam to show at LagosPhoto is a personal one, exploring migration and survival.
