For the most of 2017, I have been exploring the theme of survival. My country, Nigeria suffers from an economic recession and I was curious about how people already below the poverty line were coping. I couldn’t help but notice the different ways they were resisting – anger, joy, love, dignity, indifference, passion, hard work. These people bear the lessons of losing in order to recover, sitting it out, letting despair pass. They have kept busy with survival. Perhaps, this is the most important thing.
