Photographer per excellence and celebrated music artist, TY Bello has been earmarked as one of the facilitators of the first Fashola Photography Foundation Workshop. Other facilitators are Shola Animashaun, Yetunde Babaeko and Lukesh Olanipekun.
The event was the maiden annual workshop of the soon-to-be launched foundation as a tribute to the late Ademola Fashola by his children, in honour of his love for photography.
In preparation for the event, photographers had been asked to participate in a photo contest with the themes – ‘Photography Manipulation’, ‘Dialogue with Nature as well as ‘Nostalgia Portraits’.
There were over a thousand entries from budding photographers from across the nation.
However, only fifteen lucky photographers emerged as finalists and they were part of the workshop that held from the 22nd of July till the 26th of July. They are:
Seun Adeusi, Kehinde Yusuf, Uche Osoka, Ayo Oluwole, Fayemi Abiodun, Vivian Nwobi, Arinze Onyisi, Francis Adeoti, Eyitoyosi Onadipe, Ogunro Ayodeji, Adigwe Ndubuisi, Adegbola Adetayo and Anthony Onogbo.
The official launch of the foundation itself will take place on August 5 at the banquet hall, City Hall, Lagos.
