Interesting book launch event at the Open Society Institute's New York office next Tues, 23rd September. Here. I'm hoping to be there.
Here is the blurb:
This month, the Revenue Watch Institute and the Open Society Institute Documentary Photography Project present a discussion of oil in the Niger Delta and the use of photography in advocating for social change. Photographer Ed Kashi and author and professor Michael Watts will also be signing copies of their new book, Curse of the Black Gold: 50 Years of Oil in the Niger Delta.
