Money Must Be Made, Lorenzo Vitturi’s highly anticipated second photobook, takes us straight to the heart of Lagos, Nigeria. Continuing to explore themes of globalisation, urbanisation, colonialism and capitalism, Vitturi spent the past three years working on the project. Sending materials he gathered back to his London studio, Vitturi worked to layer painting, fabrics and objects into collages and sculptures that mimicked the arrangements he came across in this Lagos travels. In weaving different types of images together, Vitturi attempts to make sense of the time he spent there and the layers of experience and transformation he encountered along the way. Money Must Be Made is a love letter from Vitturi to Lagos, its spirit and its people.
