British photographer Akinbode Akinbiyi has devoted his art practice to the poetry of daily life. With an interest in people he has documented how city inhabitants navigate daily life, create intimate rooms and relate to society at large. Akinbiyi wanders the streets of Bamako, Berlin, Kairo, Johannesburg, Kingshasa, Lagos and other so called mega citys. Through his Rolleiflex twin-lens reflex camera, he studies social structures and reveals the invisible. The exhibition at Västerås Konstmuseum is the first solo display of Akinbiyi’s work in Sweden.
Akinbode Akinbiyi is born 1946 in Oxford, UK, to Nigerian parents. Since many years he lives and works in Berlin, Germany.
The exhibition is curated by Ulrika Flink.
