as a part of the “new african photography” series, nigerian photographer george osodi studied his homeland’s traditional monarchs.  via al jazeera:

“[There are] frequent clashes among different ethnic groups,” says Osodi. “Lots of people have lost trust in their identity. I felt it was important that we see this diverse culture as a point of unity instead of seeing it as something that should divide us as a nation.

“The easiest way I could approach this was to look at the monarchy structure in the country because they are closer to the people than the governors.”

check out the documentary below (directed by katharina von schroeder), which follows george on his visits with the kings and only queen of the country while also touching on the problems around the niger delta.  to see some of mr. osodi’s pics from the project, click here.
