Streets of Lagos

Leave a reply

‘Faces of Corruption” is the alternativ name for this small gallery.
It is sad to see how corruption (and explosive growth of course) causes immensely infrastructural problems in Lagos, Nigeria. Streets are in unbelievable bad shape, 21 year old people told me that they can’t remember a single day without a power-cut in their life and traffic collapsed because of non-existing public transport.
This very fascinating city and its great inhabitants confirmed to me again how privileged people in Europe are but also how well advanced South Africa is.
