Photography: Extraordinary photojournalism from Nigerian-born George Osodi

Nigerian photographer George Osodi is a photojournalist of extraordinary skill. The Lagos-based creative has spent an enormous amount of time on the African continent documenting the social and economic struggles of its native population, consequently earning the respect of The New York Times, Time, The Guardian, The Telegraph, USA Today and the International Herald Tribune. Not a bad haul of international newspapers really. When he’s not immersed in documenting the economic path of his country, he’s busy cataloguing the social structure – its unusual monarchy in particular – the fruits of which can be seen in London at The Bermondsey Project next month.

Nigeria Monarchs is on show at The Bermondsey Project from October 11 until November 3.
