I have been following the Lagos Photo Festival and am very impressed with the creative concepts and ideas presented and curated. If you haven't been following and need a quick fix, the NYTimes LENS photo blog gives a wonderful edit of some of the work. I can't stop looking at some of the images. They speak of race, history, current events, tragedy, and the future of Africa and it's people. The photographs make me long for a future free of race, greed, and conflict, where all people are seen as just... human.
