Supernatural. Where God is an alcoholic, Lucifer, Cain and the King of Hell are not so bad once you get to know them, and the scribe of God is a little shit.

Africa’s mineral wealth and abundant natural resources are no secret. What we also know of much of these commodities is that, in many African countries, the profits yielded from the industries established with the purpose of securing the wealth and inheritance of the citizens of these nations, more often than not, end up in the hands of greedy politicians, easily bribed leaders, and in the pockets of the mostly foreign multinational CEOs and the companies they work for.

For decades, this has been the narrative of a dire situation that only seems to be worsening, and having equally devastating effects in both the lives of those who live in these areas, and the environment surrounding them.

Nigerian photographer, George Osodi, who comes from Nigeria’s oil rich southeastern Niger Delta region, has seen firsthand just how disastrous and traumatic the exploitation of these communities and the natural resources in these regions they occupy can be. These images show two specific areas where these distressing conditions have become the norm - in Nigeria’s Niger Delta region, and in an illegal gold mine in Ghana

“Portraits of Reconciliation” by Pieter Hugo

This April marks two decades since the lives of all Rwandans were dramatically changed through violent events that would mark the country forever.

In an effort to highlight this anniversary, South African photographer Pieter Hugo recently journeyed to southern Rwanda, twenty years after nearly a million people were killed during the country’s genocide, to document the lives of those affected by the Rwandan genocide. What he captured is what the New York Times’ Susan Dominus calls “a series of unlikely, almost unthinkable tableaus”. That’s because in each of these photographs, composed of pairs, the two people posing next to each other share a haunting relationship - one a victim, the other a perpetrator. Each photograph consists of a perpetrator, who is Hutu, who was granted pardon by the Tutsi survivor of his crime.

The individuals, all of whom are part of an initiative run by the AMI (Association Modeste et Innocent) that fosters a continuing national effort toward reconciliation, all agreed to be a part of this photographic series. Through this AMI-led project, small groups of Hutus and Tutsis are counseled over a period of several months with the process leading up to the final stage where the perpetrator makes a formal request for forgiveness from their victim.

I keep thinking oh man, I’m so immature. How am I allowed to be an adult.

Then I spend time with teenagers.

And it’s like, wow, okay, yeah. I am an adult. I am so adult. Look at me adulting all over the place.
