Baingor Joiner is a self-named ‘creative consultant’ with truly diverse interests. He is a self-taught photographer and is well known for his sense of whimsy and fascination with the parts of daily life that are often ignored in art.

His journey as a photographer started as a student in London where he focused on documenting urban street style. His photography style is up close and candid for the most part, building on his beginnings as a street photographer.

Joiner also deejays, creates graphic design, writes, produces music, directs videos and much more

Describing his photography images in his own words, “It’s hard to create an organic scene that tells a story. Because of this, I actually prefer if subjects are unaware of my presence”. This is the reason for the evolution of his documentary style of photography which is quite rare among his contemporaries.

As mentioned, his range of visual expression extends to video as well with a body of work as an editor as well as a producer. Most recently, he has been creating audiovisual and graphic content for ArtXLagos and for the 2017 Nigerian award winning silent film – ‘A Hotel Called Memory’.

His unique style of photography/videography and his core belief in the freedom of expression is a perfect match with the style of Wafflesncream – a skateboarding lifestyle brand based in Lagos. This match has spurned continued collaborations with the outfit including a series of editorials documenting the budding skating culture in Lagos.

Joiner holds a Masters in Geology from University College London and grew up in Surulere, Lagos.

The creative industry is a sector that encompasses expressions in art and film to fashion and architecture. It is one of the most rapidly growing sectors globally and social media has allowed creators widen the reach of their message. VS50 merits the achievements of futurists that have inspired us through street culture, film and art and pushed our imagination through design and creative content.
