PLP News: Photographs of Somali
“Where Our Land Was”, a series of photographs of the devastating impact of civil war and climate change in Somalia by American photographer Nichole Sobecki has been shortlisted for the 2021 Leica Oscar Barnock Award.
On-going civil war and, above all, climate change are having a catastrophic impact on Somalia. The long-term project by the American photographer (born 1986) shows the dramatic consequences of drought for the inhabitants of the East African country. The global climate crisis is no myth here; people and societies are already living on the edge of the precipice.
