As part of the lineup of events for LagosPhoto 2016, Ghanaian photographer Nii Obodai’s series, ‘Who Knows Tomorrow’, will be showing at Temple Muse in a pop-up exhibition curated by Sandra Mbanefo Obiago of SMO Contemporary.

Opening tomorrow, 29th October, the exhibition is a work Nii Obodai made in collaboration with his friend, French photographer, Bruno  Boudjelal. Over a period of two years, the duo traveled through Ghana discussing the meaning of independence and the legacy of Kwame Nkrumah’s vision. The photographs made during a series of road trips,  became a poetic response to the dialogue and experience they had. ‘Who Knows Tomorrow’ is made up of four visual poems: 1966, Portraits As We AreGalamse, and The Passing.
