I’m glad that Dupe emailed me her video for a watch because it is so relevant. I’m pretty sure that not just Nigerians can relate to this and take a couple of her points with them. Plus, she’s an absolute dear to watch. What are your thoughts?
This video is timely. I tend to get saddled with negativity relating to certain issues in Nigeria, but as she said, life is happening. It’s important to put that in perspective. Thanks for sharing.
Before I return to New York portraits, I want to share some portraits and stories that I gathered on an unscheduled side trip that I took to Jerusalem. Because of the hastily arranged nature of the trip, I worked with some unorthodox interpreters, including an extremely bright sixteen year old Palestinian boy. He approached everyone quite confidently, until we got to this group, and suddenly he got fidgety and clammed up. “Um, I don’t know,” he said. “They, um, will probably say no, um, maybe we should ask someone else.”
