About Photographer

Medina is an art photographer from Ca., based in Lagos, Nigeria since 2011. She studied at Spe?os Photographic Institute. Following 4 years as a co-curator for LagosPhoto Festival, Medina resumed her focus on photography. Her work seeks to bypass the singular storylines common to Nigeria and Africa, instead addressing themes such as the female form, identity, tradition, modernity, imagination, truth, globalisation, style and space, challenging Western preconceptions and contributing to a counter movement in response to the over-representation of white bodies/stories in visual culture.
