"Dey your lane!" is an expression often heard on the streets of Lagos. It means: "That's none of your business!"
Every day, millions of people survive in this fast-growing city by relying on a particular form of resourcefulness, both individual and collective. In this book, twenty-four photographers lift the veil on the creative and artistic vitality that is generated by the African metropolis.
A number of essays interpret and contextualize their photographs. Discover how residents of this vast Nigerian city navigate the public space of the megalopolis and fulfil personal and collective ambitions.
