Alliance Française de Lagos is set to host Izzyella’s debut solo exhibition titled “Iridescentes / Iridescent” on Friday, May 11, 2018.
To take place at Alliance Française de Lagos , 239 Herbert Macaulay Way, Alagomeji, Yaba, Lagos, a statement from the French culture organisation said it decided to focus on photography this year and give opportunity to up-and-coming photographers to show their works for the very first time.
“After two successful exhibitions, we are glad to present “Iridescentes / Iridescent” by Isabella Agbaje also known as Izzyella,” the statement explained.
Iridescent, it further said, means of colours and lights, showing luminous colours that seem to change when seen from different angles.
“Everything about our perception is iridescent. I’ve taken this to also reflect the emotions caused when light hits colour, because these emotions piggyback off our perception of the colours which are changing due to the light” said Izzyella.
The Lagos-based photographer has branded herself with a quirky style. Izzyella’s lenses move through the crevices of Conceptual Photography finding achievements in the execution of a concept in a landscape that is setup for failure.
With “Iridescentes / Iridescent” the photographer offers a series of colourful portraits. Playing with lights and carefully chosen backgrounds, she manages to present images of people glowing, blooming and shining despite the challenges of the Lagos life.
Time for the free to the public event is 2pm.
