Samenvatting

The Niger Delta is one of the most corrupt and dangerous places in the world for one reason - oil. Discovered in the Niger Delta in the 1950s, it soon triggered the development of a powerful oil industry. The people are poor that live in this oil-rich land, and the environment that surrounds them is lethal - with oil leaks and burning gas all around.George Osodi is a Nigerian photographer living in Lagos, whose dramatic images bring us the eternal days of a land bathed in the orange glow of burning oil, a land that holds oil even in the mud on the roads for young children to collect. The tension is growing between local guerillas and oil companies, who do not care of the cost of human life versus oil. George Osodi's photographs range between photojournalism, artistic documentary photography and activism. His committed and critical eye closely observes social, economic and ecological processes of exploitation and shows the drastic effects to the precariously balanced life in the region.
