Life in the Niger Delta - 08 Feb 2013
Photographer Akintunde Akinlaye travelled through the Niger Delta photographing life he found along the River Nun. Despite billions of dollars worth of oil flowing out of Nigeria South East, life for the majority of Niger Delta's inhabitants remains unchanged. Most people live in modest iron-roofed shacks, and rely on farming or fishing, their only interaction with the oil industry being when they step over pipelines in the swamps – or when a spill blights their landscape.
