Nigeria Monarchs: The Custodians of Peace and Cultural Heritage

The Lagos-based photographer produces some of the most incredible photojournalism I’ve ever seen; this series Nigeria Monarchs: The Custodians of Peace and Cultural Heritage documents the figures across Nigeria who, in spite of having no constitutional rule since the monarchy was officially abolished in 1963, remain key personalities in the country’s political landscape. The travelling exhibition had a stint in London last year and is about to open in Budapest, Hungary, serving as further proof (if any was needed) of the curiosity which pervades worldwide about these majestic and exotic figures. What’s more George hopes to photograph 100 of the monarchs, so the collection is not due to stop growing any time soon.

Nigeria Monarchs will run from 19 September until 14 December at the Ethnographic Museum in Budapest, Hungary.

Varvara Lozenko

From 320 Icelanders

When fine art photographer Varvara Lozenko first came to Iceland in summer 2007 she was amazed by the contrast between the vast uninhabited and immaculate space, looking exactly like it did many years ago and the tiny population numbering just some 320 thousand people. There she decided to photograph 320 people by the number of thousands of the country’s population. Every portrait stands for 1000 people. Therefor she needed to travel all around the country and take portrait pictures of Icelanders of different age, social status, doing different jobs, from farming to fishing, carpentry, cargo driving, preaching and bread-baking.

1990-2003

Starting in the early ’90s, my work focused on female-to-male as well as male-to-female people who live full time in the gender in which they identify. I photographed the evolution of political activism, young gender variant people, and made portraits of individuals as their life circumstances changed. “The Gender Frontier”, published in 2003, represents an amazing decade in the struggle against discrimination.
