Photo Junctions with LagosPhoto is a week-long event organised by the embassies of France, Germany, Spain and The Netherlands, the Thought Pyramid Art Centre and in partnership with LagosPhoto Festival.
The aim of this initiative is to promote international photography in Abuja and to provide local photographers an opportunity to exchange their visions and photographs also with foreign photographers.
Three facilitators from France, Spain and The Netherlands will be in Abuja for a few days to give workshops. The event will also host 3 different photo exhibitions (two at the Thought Pyramid Gallery and one at the French Institute) and two talks based on the topic of “The Journey” by Nigerian photographers Aisha Augie-Kuta and Tom Saater. While the workshops will be restricted to a list of selected participants, the opening, talks and closing event will be open to the general public.
This event, planned for next May 15th until May 22nd, will be the first edition of an annual event, which we hope will enrich the cultural agenda of the capital city.
