Lagos is widely known for its chaos. The danfo buses are always trying to beat traffic by desperately finding the smallest spaces to maneuver, spewing insults to fellow motorists in the process. The area boys are always in a constant battle with the danfo drivers & their conductors. The police & traffic wardens hopelessly try to control the errant danfo drivers. The roadside traders are always tugging it out with pedestrians. The cramped expressions on faces, the throbbing veins in people’s necks, the eyes spewing fire over nothing.
From the outside, Lagosians appear to be in a constant state of rage. First-timers to Lagos have been known to ask ‘Why is everyone shouting? What are they so angry about?’.
On Wednesday, 7th August 2013, the Street Shooters NG are going on the streets of Oshodi to capture scenes that express these CHAOS.
