Amanda Ihemebiri owes her love of old African architecture to the old cities she has resided in over the years. She studied at the University Of Cape Coast which stands close to the Elmina Castle erected by the Portuguese in 1482. She then returned to Nigeria to serve her country in the old warrior city of Ibadan – another treasure trove of African architecture.
She is currently working on a photo project that focuses on the architectural history of Lagos. You can find her work on www.amandaiheme.com.
