Definitely as a personal photographer of the outgoing Governor of Lagos State, Mr. Babatunde Fashola, he has practically seen it all. He has snapped the kings and captured the queens with his lenses. Apart from having toured many parts of Lagos, he has followed his camera to different parts of the country and the world, following the governor and his executive allies.
Mr Lukman Olaonipekun, who got into the trade by some coincidence, believes he has a story to tell. This is what inspired his Fashola Years, a book of photographs to be presented in Lagos on May 27. The man otherwise called 'Lukesh' is, however, combining the presentation with the exhibition of 40 of photos expressing diverse themes and epochs of his work with a veteran photographer Tam Fiofori, as the curator.
According to him, the book is for historical purposes and for proper documentation of an era in Lagos State
