The Journey is the Destination – Adebola Rayo

Posted: August 25, 2012 at 8:53 am by

There are different ways in which courage manifests. Sometimes, it is in leaving, moving forward. To see more and tell more. Maybe be more. There are those who have come from outside Nigeria—even Africa—to make this trip. There are also two who have had barely a week to prepare for the 50-day trip ahead. Some […]

Posted: January 27, 2012 at 4:07 pm

Note: Although mainly a photography organization, The Invisible Borders Trans-African Photography Project is committed to ensuring that art and artists are useful tools in bringing about transformation across Africa.

Reflections on an Outward Journey (4) – Borders

Posted: January 9, 2012 at 4:24 am

On her face, there are worried lines. She looks older and melancholic. And he, sitting beside her, has a similar look on his face. It could be that they are sitting at a shanty Custom post in Gamboru-Ngala, or Kouserri or Matema. She could be Kemi or Jumoke or Nana. He could be Ray, Emeka, […]

Reflections on an Outward Journey (3) – Work

Posted: January 7, 2012 at 5:51 am

There is a photo by Kemi of three old men that remind me of the Jews of Kerala. The story of Kerala Jews is aptly told by Edna Fernandes. Her story is of a dying community of diasporic Jews and Jewesses, whose decline results from discrimination and discord. The intersection between Kemi’s photograph and Fernandes’ […]

Emeka Okereke:  Emeka has been preoccupied by what he calls ‘fragments of moments.’ Nana says there is a poetic stillness in his work.                     Jumoke Sanwo Jumoke’s project on the trip has been the ‘Faces Project.’ For more on Jumoke’s project, read her conversation with Emmanuel.     […]

Khartoum: Wide City Work – Emmanuel Iduma

Posted: November 23, 2011 at 11:19 pm

We woke with the determination to make an open city our workspace. The experience of the previous night was still fresh; particularly, I was interested in investigating the modes in which Khartoum had, despite reaching out for modernity, retained its past. Good enough, our encounters were laced with historical anecdotes and references to Khartoum’s past. […]

Khartoum: Receptive Terrain – Emmanuel Iduma

Posted: November 21, 2011 at 10:43 pm

Just as I began to write this, the noise of passing trucks on the road beneath our window ceased, and the noiselessness made me think of the words I had once seen, “No two days are the same.” Khartoum emphasizes these words, in ways I will speak of, and how different it is from other […]

Images: Emeka Okereke, Ray-Daniels Okeugo, Jumoke Sanwo, Kemi Akin-Nibosun & Emmanuel Iduma Text: Emmanuel Iduma In telling our Tchadian story, I begin with the following premise: Our constant challenge was to find a way to see – to feel, to work – that shares rather than manipulates. It was a hoax, this. We are travelling these places without […]
