Monochrome Lagos has announced that it is collaborating with Arts and Africa for the second edition of the Monochrome Lagos Photo-book.

According to a statement, which includes a call for submissions, “This collaboration is mainly to further the interaction between Photography and Literature as an art form, which was the initial intention of starting the Photo-book.”

What’s required?

Say the collaborators: “We are looking for people to submit poetry, essays, stories or whatever it is they’re inspired to write by the photographs from the Monochrome Lagos photography project.’

Submissions opened on July 1 and will close August 31st.

“It’s a project about how we, as individuals, interact and relate with Lagos as a city, or as home or as whatever Lagos is to us and there are no limitations to our expressions of these things,” says founder and curator of Monochrome Lagos, Logor Olumuyiwa. “You don’t have to be a writer, you just have to want to express. We look forward to reading your varied ideas and experiences. Share with us.”
