Summary: NIGERIA is a book that explores the many landscapes, heritage and cultural diversity that make up Africa’s most populous country. Renowned photographer, Dayo Adedayo’s portraits of some of the country’s most famous landmarks, juxtaposed with ones that are relatively unknown, makes for a collection of photographs that are both breathtakingly beautiful and informative- a future classic. NIGERIA depicts Africa’s most populous country as it has never been seen before.
In the making of NIGERIA, Adedayo travelled in the course of seven years, to all the thirty- six states and Abuja- the Federal Capital Territory that make up the Federal Republic of Nigeria, always armed with his cameras and an eye that innately seeks out the unusual.
Several thousand stills were edited into the images that are in this limited special edition. There are many firsts in the book; the Awhum Waterfalls in Enugu State have never been photographed, neither is the Jaffi Falls in Borno State. The Sun Tan Beach in Lagos State looks as idyllic as the iconic images of Miami’s South Beach. The greatest challenges posed by the project were the logistics- many of the more remote locations were extremely difficult to reach, but Adedayo was determined- the book was more than a project, it was about depicting his homeland in a whole new light and illustrating vividly that it is a spectacular destination with a rich heritage and a promising future.
