These views of Ogui Road, a major thoroughfare in Enugu, capture the hustle and bustle of urban life in Nigeria. The images show the city complete with phone lines, public transportation and high-rise hotels. They offer an alternative to the prevalent images of the African landscape that emphasize a wild natural world with little evidence of human habitation.
