An elderly man waits to meet with a doctor in a small rural medical center in Imo State. Over the next few weeks, I’ll be posting some images shot on film that got lost in the shuffle from my last trip to Nigeria as I’m now just finishing up my scans and preparing to return in a few weeks. #nigeria #filmsnotdead #kodak #healthcare #Africa #latergram
Leica’s LFI Magazine ran my project “Black Diamonds” two weeks ago and I got an early Xmas gift when I realized one of my photographs was on the cover along with a 6-page feature. Here is the full article with an interview link below.
A Dominican sex worker asks to have her picture taken during a birthday party for a Nigerian student on March 31, 2013 in Istanbul, Turkey. Three women were hired to bring a cake and candles for the party before they left after drinking all of the boys alcohol and getting paid.
The basement apartment, where the party was held, is shared between 9 Nigerians, 5 of them who were brought to Istanbul three years ago by fake “agents” to play professional football, only to find themselves abandoned and broke, battling poverty and unemployment with little chance of ever playing professionally again.
