FEATURED BODY OF WORK – KARMAJIJI
The Northern region of Nigeria has been battling a terrorist group called Boko Haram which means Western Education is Bad. Boko Haram promotes a version of Islam which makes it “haram” or forbidden for Muslims to take part in any political, or social activity associated with the western society. The group launched its first attack in 2009 , targeting civilians, students and the military The series of images were taken at the Karmajiji IDP CAMP. I captured the victims of Boko Haram attacks that reside at the camp. It was important for me as a photographer to not only shows the faces of the people that live there but it was very important to capture the emotional landscape with the rest of the world.
