Created in 2017. Somi Nwandu journeyed to explore the curiosity that is, Makoko. Off the coast of Lagos’ mainland is Makoko; a community largely situated on water. A vast floating insanitary slum filled with heartbreak, hope and resilience. It is a nation onto itself. As one crosses the Third Mainland Bridge, the single pathway between the mainland and the island of Lagos, Nigeria, they are graced with a coastal view of the community. The wooden houses built on bamboo stilts, almost uncomfortably close to each other, are an extreme contrast to the modernity of the island. Life in Makoko runs on its own frequency.
