May 28, 2023

With artificially generated images winning photography awards and further blurring the boundaries of reality in social media, image manipulation is more present than ever. Seven photographers who are both critical and experimental in their approach to the medium now get to present themselves on the big stage: New York's Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) is showcasing their latest works in the exhibition New Photography 2023. From May 28 to September 16, visitors can enjoy poetic street photography, architectural and experimental images.

MoMA's critically acclaimed New Photography series has been running since 1985. This year, the curators are taking a new approach: All of the selected photographers combine their artistic convictions as well as the city of Lagos, to which they have different connections. Nigeria's largest city is also the second largest in Africa and a cultural and artistic center of the continent. The photographers Kelani Abass (*1979), Akinbode Akinbiyi (*1946), Yagazie Emezi (*1989), Amanda Iheme (*1992), Abraham Oghobase (*1979), Karl Ohiri (*1983), and Logo Oluwamuyiwa (*1990) are exhibiting at MoMA for the first time.Art.Salon
