The Essence of Art in Human Existence


"The light at the end of the dark tunnel". Original photograph by EKENYERENGOZI Michael Chima. 2019. All rights reserved.

A world without Art is like a life without a spirit;
Like a soul without a heart.
Like an egg without the yolk.
Art is the essence of human existence that begun from creation and continues in the evolution of life in the universe.

You have heard such phrases like "a heartless soul!" and "there is no spirit in him".  So that is what a society that does not appreciate art becomes.
The brutish man or woman does not read and is not cultured in the ethical standards of modern civilisation.

Using Photography for Art Therapy During the Trauma of COVID-19 Pandemic


#wednesdayvibes✌
Wednesday July 22, 2020
Yaba, Lagos, Nigeria.


The Health Benefits of Art Therapy have been helping millions of people during the #lockdown  of the COVID-19 pandemic. And I have used my smartphone for Self-portraits in photos and videos on my moods at different times in self isolation showing my stream of consciousness.
The most appropriate photographs will be for the
publication of my new photo book, "SOLICITUDE in SOLITUDE: Overcoming the Trauma of COVID-19" which will be released after the lockdown and circulated worldwide by Amazon.

Lagos is the Most Resilient Megacity in Africa


Sabo area in Yaba, Lagos. From my "Lagos in Motion" documentary film on one of the most resilient mega cities in the world. “

"A Resilient City is one that has developed capacities to help absorb future shocks and stresses to its social, economic, and technical systems and infrastructures so as to still be able to maintain essentially the same functions, structures, systems, and identity." https://www.resilientcity.org › ...

The first interactive documentary film on the resilience of Lagos was "Lagos Wide and Close: an Interactive Journey into an Exploding City" produced in 2002 by Rem Koolhaas and The Harvard Project on the City. It was directed by Bregtje van der Haak.
