Book Launch: Last day in Lagos by Marilyn Nance
We are pleased to present the debut monograph of Brooklyn-based photographer Marilyn Nance: Last Day in Lagos. The book, which was edited by Oluremi C. Onabanjo and includes a foreword by Julie Mehretu and an interview between Nance and Onabanjo, will be released on October 1, tied to Nigerian Independence Day.
While serving as the photographer for the US contingent of the North American delegation, Brooklyn-based photographer Marilyn Nance made more than 1,500 images throughout the course of the festival—one of the most comprehensive photographic accounts of FESTAC’77. Drawing from Nance’s extensive archive, most of which has never before been published, Last Day in Lagos chronicles the exuberant intensity and sociopolitical significance of this extraordinary event.
