A team of nine creatives comprising Borders Within II have recently concluded the second half of a road trip across the country, putting an end to the important work begun in 2016. During the six-week road trip which started mid-October through November, participants travelled through several Nigerian cities and towns documenting photos and stories that explored and reflected impressionistic, yet critical readings of contemporary Nigeria.

Here are 15 interesting photos from the Trans-Nigerian project:
