Ojeikere, A Compelling Monograph on a Photographic Legend
Not since 2000 and the release of J.D. ‘Okhai Ojeikere: Photographs has there been an extensive publication dedicated to the work of the late Nigerian photographer (1930-2014). This October at 1-54 art fair in London, a new monograph is set to launch with more than 200 photographs from Ojeikere’s archives along with critical essays that includes the artist’s final in-depth interview.
With the project in its final stage of development, Bisi Silva has launched a kickstarter campaign to complete and print the book. There are some exciting rewards on offer, such as one remaining Ojeikere archival print at £1,500 GBP with copies of the publication for donations of £70 GBP.
The campaign closes on Sept 22nd.
Visit the kickstarter page for more details.
