Akinbode Akinbiyi is a Nigerian Berlin-based photographer, curator and writer.
Akinbiyi has worked as a photographer since 1974, focusing on photojournalism and architectural and cultural photography in African megacities. He has documented scenes from Johannesburg, Lagos, Kinsasha, Dakar and Douala; bringing viewers closer to urban life on the continent: from the banal everyday occurrences to the increasing profusion of high-rises.
In 2016, Akinbiyi’s work was published in the catalogue of Kenyan photographer Mimi Cherono Ng’ok, Always, in Spite of Everything. Akin Akinbiyi will participate with new works in documenta 14 in 2017, which will be held in Athens and Kassel.
