The photographic series My Nights are brighter than your Days (2016) by Franck Abd-Bakar Fanny is the result of nocturnal city wanderings. The body of work records the metropolis and surrounding suburban landscapes after dark, using light and shadow to cast a hyperreal effect.
The collection is on view as part of African Metropolis: An Imaginary City at MAXXI, Rome, as part of a major project celebrating work by African artists. Until 4 November. Find out more here.
