‘E wa wo mi’ is an ongoing photography exhibition by Nigerian artist Lakin Ogunbanwo at the @whatiftheworld_gallery .
In ‘E wa wo mi’ (come look at me) ,Lakin uses his photography to explore and showcase the aesthetics and performance of Nigerian marriage ceremonies with emphasis on the hats worn by women across ethnic groups,he also uses elaborate sets of draped fabric as a backdrop for these brides to carry out different performance acts of love,familial,cultural pride,feminine strength and a heterogeneous African identity but these are also the burdens of being wives ,mothers and daughters-in-law.
After coming out with a degree in Applied Geophysics at OAU two years ago, i've been struggling a bit with my art and most times i feel like i should give up and just focus solely on geophysics. But looking up to @foladavid , this man has inspired me in so many ways, seeing his works as an artist and a medical doctor and listening to his presentation at TED talk in ife, i have come to realize that we can do anything we put our mind into. Your arts are so much inspiring and your enthusiasm is way beyond this world. I say a very big thank you for motivation people like us without even knowing it. God bless you. And sorry about the poor camera

Her works are heavily informed by personal experiences and observations. She is especially interested in exploring the subtle interplay and dynamics of time,space,gender,power and social structures in contemporary society,and sees the intricacy of her work as a visual metaphor of the complexity of her subjects.
