Either she is off to refill it or is returning having refilled it. A mosque is being built, and you see the fence that will cordon it from trespassers. The woman is the tip of a triangle formed by her and the figures ahead. Life goes on, balanced.” Emeka Okereke is a photographer, poet, and founder / artistic director of Invisible Borders Trans-African Photography Project @invisibleborders.
