Book on J.A. Green, Nigeria’s first indigenous professional photographer for launch

This book is a welcome change from the many literary works that are presented in this weblog. This time a book on a famous Nigerian photograher Jonathan Adagogo Green. Jonathan was born in 1873 in Bonny, he moved to Sierra Leone to learn the art of photography.  He moved back to Bonny and he made a name for himself when he had opened a studio to start his work. He not only worked in his studio but also travelled to visit peoples and places.

Now a book will be launched to honour his legacy and the immense work he did.
