#Dysturb in Melbourne, Australia

March 9 - March 31

#Dysturb is an incredible network of photojournalists who aim to make visual stories accessible to wider audiences by pasting large images in city streets; challenging viewership in today’s world of image sharing via screens. They work with professional image makers to create campaigns, foster conversations, and resist conventional news channels.

#Dysturb has pasted over 500 posters in 40 cities internationally. They focus on collaborating with schools around the world to prioritize education and involvement of students.

My photograph in Port Harcourt, Nigeria taken on May 28, 2006 is now hanging on the corner of Sydney Street and Johnston Street, Collingwood, Melbourne.

“Paulious Uko, 14, carries a goat through burning tires at the Trans Amadi Slaughter, the largest abattoir in the Niger Delta. Oil and gas exploitation has had many ramifications on the community, one of them being within the food industry. Fish was the traditional source of protein for the locals, but after the soiling of fisheries, Niger Deltans turned to meat and produced slaughterhouses with practices that are inefficient for the environment and dangerous for workers.”
