Eko Photo Open Exhibition Shows It All: History, Elegance And Culture!

When the photography art exhibition held its closing ceremony at the Ember Creek, Awolowo Road, Ikoyi  venue on January 20, 2013, 22 photographers dotted the large space with over a 100 pieces of different photographic works.
As the collection varied in sizes, so were there contents, but best of all was what they stood for; a historical collection that would tell the lifestyle and things that stayed prominent in today’s day-to-day living among the people.
