3. For the last five months, one anonymous blogger has been photographing the city’s most striking people on the streets and posting the pictures — plus commentary — on Lagos Street Style.

4. The photographer, who recently moved to Nigeria from Scotland, is a lawyer in the oil and gas sector.

“I have a keen interest in style, street photography, writing, and people-watching,” she says. “The best way to combine all these loves was the blog.”
