Photojournalism Daily: Dec. 16, 2014

Dec 16, 2014

Today’s daily Photojournalism Links collection highlights Robin Hammond's portrait of Lagos, Nigeria, where the booming economy is widening the wealth gap. Lagos is the largest commercial hub in Nigeria, which hosts Africa's largest economy, and has become one of the continent's great success stories. But not everyone has benefitted the same way. Hammond's excellent photographs, made on assignment for National Geographic, take us from the exclusive clubs and gated communities of the rich to the squalid shanty towns and decayed housing complexes of the poor. The juxtaposition of impoverished and prosperous in this series is both jarring and stunning.
