About me

Baingor Joiner Gambian-Nigerian, 1993 Baingor Joiner is a 23-year-old Master's graduate in Geology, which he studied at UCL. He is also a multidisciplinary creative and self-taught photographer, best known for his eclectic interests and whimsical sensibilities. Starting his pursuits into art in primary school, he quickly picked up basic concepts and techniques in drawing and painting, leading to his partaking in local art competitions. His keen interest in the arts continued all through his educational career, with teachers earmarking his knack for quick, accurate sketches. His foray into photography would start over a decade later, this time on the streets of London in 2011, while in University. His style is up close and candid for the most part, building on his beginnings as a street photographer. He cites this when describing his work, ”’It’s hard to create an organic scene that tells a story. Because of this, I actually prefer if a subject is unaware of my presence for the most part.” Since 2011, he has been to different destinations in Europe and West Africa. Documenting as he does so, he has created an archive that would prepare him for his first series of joint and solo exhibitions in Lagos and Accra, 2017.
