In Conversation with Stephen Tayo

On this episode, I have a conversation with Stephen Tayo, a photographer living in Lagos. Stephen’s rise to international recognition started with his work capturing street style in Lagos. Since then, his focus has expanded and his work explores themes like Yoruba cultural heritage and cosmology, urban culture across West Africa, and youth-led counter-cultural movements. Our conversation focuses on Stephen's practice and influences, the emergence of Nigerian pop culture as a global cultural force, and navigating global cultural spaces as a young Nigerian.
