Highly recommended. Don't miss this!
In this compelling, passionate video interview with VII The Magazine, award-winning photographer Ed Kashi talks about his years covering the explosive situation in the Niger Delta. This story has everything: Big oil companies, a corrupt political situation, great wealth and extreme poverty, war and the 50th Anniversary of Nigeria's Independence. His photographs are powerful, sad and beautiful all at the same time. Kashi also has some proposals that provide some hope for the future of the people of Nigeria.
Ed Kashi has dedicated his photographic career to documenting the social and political issues that define our times. Since graduating with a degree in photojournalism from Syracuse University in 1979, he has photographed in over 60 countries. His images and essays have appeared in National Geographic, The New York Times Magazine, Time, Fortune, Geo, Newsweek, and various other domestic and international publications.
