Location: lagos

Native, in collaboration with the African Artists’ Foundation, Blink and the International Women’s Media Foundation, is pleased to announce the 14 participants that will join the three-day free Creative Lab on August 9, 10 and 11.

The Lab will be an opportunity to celebrate local, regional and international visual heritage and to learn how to break away from established and colonial gazes to tell personal visual stories effectively.

Photographers from all over the African continent were encouraged to apply. After having received over 50 applications a total of 14 visual storytellers, 9 female and 5 male were selected.

Here are the participants of the Native Creative Lab in Lagos, Nigeria:

Jonathan Chambalin (Nigeria)
Barry Christianson (South Africa)
Yagazie Emezi (Nigeria)
Thana Faroq (Yemen)
Néha Hirve (India)
Nneka Iwunna Ezemezue (Nigeria)
Joseph Obanubi (Nigeria)
Lee-Ann Olwage (South Africa)
Adetona Omokanye (Nigeria)
Etinosa Yvonne Osayimwen (Nigeria)
Miora Rajaonary (Madagascar)
Wana Udobang (Nigeria)
Benson Ibeabuchi Ugochukwu (Nigeria)
Ley Uwera (DR Congo)

We will explore different aspects in documentary visual essay-making such as: how to develop ideas; how to research; production; editing and writing of photo captions of your visual story. There will be a critical assessment of ideas for documentary projects in terms of their visual and commercial potential and we will learn the best approach to grant writing.

During the three-day Lab we have invited talented and inspiring local and international guest speakers, who include:

Andrew Esiebo, Nigerian photographer
Jehan Jillani, photo editor @National Geographic
Olivier Laurent, photo editor @The Washington Post
Nicole Werbeck, photo editor @NPR
Kyla Woods, Blink
