Two professional photographers, Sebastien Godret and Jean-Pierre Elie, came to Ibadan and University of Ibadan. for a week of field work, on the invitation of IFRA-Nigeria. (French Institute for Research in Africa). Their work must lead to the publication of a book on urbanism and society in Ibadan. The two photographers found in Ibadan a particularly inspiring area, because of the remarkable architectural heritage of the city – with a great diversity of styles coming from the 30’s to the 80’s – and because of the way people have appropriated and used the space.
