About Logor Oluwamuyiwa's work
His approach revolves around narrative and documentary style photography with intermittent bouts of conceptual elemental infusions via poetry, collage and digital manipulations. Logor’s interest is to engage both eye and equipment to observe the unique human carnival in Lagos and the world around him by capturing people, things and narratives that are often overlooked, ignored or taken for granted. Thus, he is interested in ephemerality and the banal in connection to the things of the “real” that leads to the creation of stories were the audience or viewers can draw personal references.
Logor explores aspects of visual and digital archiving by showing and exposing the idiosyncrasies and aesthetics of the city in its true character and reflection. He is an advocate for positive and rich storytelling via the digital media as a tool for reorientation and pathways to new dialogue and knowledge acquisition.
