Photo exhibition Everyday Nile
t/m Donderdag 30 Mei 2019
In countries like Egypt, Ethiopia or Sudan, the Nile is considered of strategic national interest, and therefore highly securitised. Studying or reporting on such a sensitive issue is an art that requires equilibrium, but also creativity and acrobatics. EverydayNile brings together photographers, journalists and researchers from different Nile basin countries to challenge stereotypes like the “blue gold” or the “water war” that distort our understanding of the Nile river. By linking photos, storytelling and scientific research, they wish to foreground alternative narratives that surprise, delight, inform and facilitate transboundary connections. The photo exhibition presents the gaze on the river by Roger Ainis (Egypt), Ahmed Saeed (Sudan) and Michael Tsegaye (Ethiopia). Photographers, journalists, researchers and Nile citizens will share their stories on social media with the hashtag #EverydayNile. Follow @EverydayNile2019 on Instagram and Twitter.
