Oil boom, Delta burns : George Osodi
Internationally-acclaimed Nigerian photographer George Osodi has spent more than six years documenting the injustices occurring in the Niger Delta, a region rich in natural resources and beauty.
For more than five centuries the fortunes of the Niger Delta, a southern region of Nigeria in West Africa, have been closely tied to those of the global economy: from its slave ports, then palm oil industry, through to the discovery of crude oil in the 1950s.
The ten photographs in this exhibition explore the realities of daily life along the Niger Delta. They are accompanied by a slideshow featuring a further 200 images from George Osodi’s work. Sometimes graphic, they reveal the human tragedy and ecological destruction being visited on the Niger Delta and its people.
Osodi’s work carries on the cause of Nigerian author, activist and member of the Ogoni people, Ken Saro-Wiwa, who fought against the oil giants and the Nigerian government for the rights of the people.
George Osodi was born in Lagos in 1974. He worked as a photojournalist for the Comet Newspaper in Lagos from 1999 before joining the Associated Press News Agency in 2001. He has covered many assignments for international media including the New York Times, The Guardian and USA Today. In 2004 he won First Prize in the Fuji African Photojournalist of the Year award. His photographs have been exhibited in museums around the globe.
