MUSE: A Photo Exhibition by Lakin Ogunbanwo

‘MUSE’, a 35-piece photo exhibition by the renowned, Nigerian born photographer, Lakin Ogunbanwo, was unveiled last Thursday 5th December 2013 at the Didi Museum, Lagos, to universal acclaim and appreciation.

Inspired by three iconoclastic models and curated by Marc Prust, Muse is a studied walk through the mind of a restless artist – a juxtaposition of highly stylized imagery on raw moody crust. ‘Muse’ captures beauty and glamour through the unyielding eye of one. This first of a 2-part exhibition was sponsored by the Lagos State Internal Revenue Service (LIRS) and the world’s most loved champagne, Moet & Chandon. Tunde Fowler, Executive Chairman, LIRS, was on hand to launch the exhibition.
