Photographing Northern Nigeria


This is an excellent interview with Glenna Gordon who has spent much time in Kano in northern Nigeria taking photos of the locals, weddings, and other settings. Glenna is an American who takes it upon herself to photograph “ordinary” people in their local communities, away from the more sensationalist discourse about Nigeria such as Boko Haram, corruption, the Niger Delta etc.
