The Lagos Yusuf Sanni sees is not the same Lagos the rest of us see. His Lagos is raw
and brutal, striking and powerful and rural. He’s not really one to take breathtaking
pictures of the better-developed part of Lagos. You won’t catch him taking pictures
of the Eko bridge at night when the light plays on the water.

What you would find him capturing instead are Danfo drivers and the street
hawkers who’ve turned hustling into an art. You will find pictures of Makoko
community and the people who call it home.

Pictures that are real, strong, leaving an indelible mark of a Lagos that is like nowhere else in the world.
