Akinbode Akinbiyi is a chronicler of urban life. Like a flâneur, he moves through the streets of mainly African megacities, Lagos, Cairo, Johannesburg, Kinshasa, capturing everyday scenes with his SLR camera: people waiting and passing by, double-decker buses, billboards, intersections, seemingly trivial things that translate the rhythm of modern life into poetic images. Currently, you can see them at documenta14 in Kassel – and in the latest print issue of Contemporary And.
