Presentation

Born in Nigeria in 2000, Ebuka Michael is studying photography and graphic design at the University of Lagos. An avowed fan of the 8th art, he began to express his sensitivity through photography. Strongly influenced by his environment, Lagos, a megalopolis that teems with energy and fascinates him, his gaze focuses on expressing the present moment through the life scenes of his contemporaries. In his eyes, color translates with ease the human density and the feelings aroused by these moments charged with intensity. Aware of the joy aroused by his images with colorful tones with those around him, Ebuka manages to capture beauty while sharing it with as many people as possible.

It is an emblematic space of my art, I discovered it in 2019. After having taken my first photographs there, I was very surprised at the unparalleled aesthetic that was revealed", specifies he.
