Ed Kashi - About A Photograph

11/15/2017

We published this some time ago, and figured some of you may well find it interesting these days. You can see the entire series here 

Ed Kashi, photojournalist, film maker and educator dedicated to documenting the social and political issues that define our times. This week*, About A Photograph looks at a photograph from Ed, that he made in Nigeria.

Africa’s most populous country, Nigeria is plagued by ethno-religious violence, inciting intense fear amongst the population. Boko Haram is a terrorist group and extremist Islamization movement responsible for over 4,700 deaths in Nigeria since 2009. Bombings and and slaughters of Christian Nigerians or “traitor” Muslim Nigerians, have left locals on edge constantly in fear, trusting no one.
