VENTURES AFRICA – Eko Photo Club of Lagos (EPC) rounds off the maiden-annual-crossover international exhibition titled Eko Photo Open Exhibition (EPOE) 2012-2013. The official closing ceremony for EPOE 2012-2013 was held at the tranquil venue of the exhibition, Ember Creek, Victoria Island, on the 20th of January 2013.
It was graced with the presence of notable photographers such as Yetunde Babaeko, Seun Akinsanmi, Body Lawson and a host of others. Four certificates of recognition were awarded by the club to Yetunde Babaeko, Seun Akisanmi, Olawale Ajao, and Orelaja Akeem for their contributions to modern photography.
The exhibition opened on the 16th of December 2012 with 22 photographers displaying about 100 works called photo-arts. We call them photo-arts for they are photographs that can be used as art decorations for homes, offices, restaurants, hotels, etc.
Such a peculiar photography exhibition has never been recorded in Nigeria before now, and all artworks have been up for sale by the photographers.
Although the official closing ceremony of the exhibition was the 20th of January 2013, due to demand, the photo-art exhibition continues till the end of February; works gradually leave the venue from this week. Those who still want a quick look, admiration, or purchase of the works can visit Eko Photo Club’s Facebook page.
The second edition for EPOE starts in December 2013 and as is characteristic of itself, spill into 2014. Call for entries will commence on September 2013.
