Adolphus Opara is a visual artist / photojournalist who has been involved in a number of photography projects in Nigeria and around the world, with his favoured themes ranging from religion to portraiture. His work has appeared in publications such as Private, Timeout Nigeria, Lagos: City at Work and also on the BBC website. He was a third place winner in the first Photo Africa contest organised by the Andalusian Centre of Photography and Al Tarab in April 2008. He has a permanent exhibition at Bogobiri House in Lagos. Affectionately known by the wonderfully non-photographic handle, “Gestapo”, Adolphus is also a nominee for the Future Awards Artist of the Year.
