ARCHIVE OF BECOMING

Witnessing parts of history on the verge of being erased through decay and neglect became the starting point for the Lagos Studio Archives' first series entitled the Archive of Becoming (2015- Ongoing) - a collection of over 100 dilapidated orphan negatives that have been resurrected and reproduced to explore notions of beauty, memory and the unpredictable life of images.




Installation view: 16 images from the Archive of Becoming, New Photography 2023, MoMA, New York.
