Ade Adekola – Icons of the Metropolis


Nigerian photographer and conceptual artist Ade Adekola has created an intriguing visual symbolization of the bustling city of Lagos through 20 icons of the city characters.

As he says: “Icons of a Metropolis” offers a non-judgmental look at 20 character archetypes – they are the ICONS. They are a creative force, a self-organizing and self-referential manifestation of the zenith of urban survival.

Although they are meant to represent Lagos, do you feel any of the icons are found in your city? We’ve selected a few to show:

The Opportunist

The Praise Crier

The Okada

The Sand Dredger

The Cart Pusher

The Challenger
