Medina Dugger

Medina Dugger (born in Corpus Christi, Texas) is an art photographer from California, based in Lagos, Nigeria since 2011. Through collage and photography, her work seeks to bypass the singular storylines common to Nigeria and Africa, instead focusing on themes both contemporary and timeless including acculturation, ethnocentrism, cultural homogenisation, globalisation, identity, tradition, modernity, imagination, the female form and style. Her work challenges Western preconceptions on race, colour and perceptions of ‘otherness’. Her photographic work has been featured in Vogue, Smithsonian Magazine, Something We Africans Got, CNN Africa, De Volkskrant, Dazed, Refinery 29, Design Indaba, Marie Claire SA, Konbini, Infringe, Heaps Magazine, De Standaard, and Ours Magazine, among others.
