Priya Ramrakha

Priya Ramrakha was a Kenyan photographer/journalist killed 41 years ago while covering the Nigerian civil war for Time-Life. The link takes you to a New York Times page with a trailer for the film "Africa Lens: the story of Priya Ramrakha" (towards the bottom of the page). The Priya Foundation website is here. The film cannot be more widely show at the moment because of the prohibitive cost of buying the rights to show footage.

Thanks for pointing me in the direction of this fine photo journalist. I'd heard of him and his passing in Biafra, but never seen any of his photos until now. They are a fascinating window into an interesting period in post colonial Africa. I really hope the film gets a wider distribution.
