Economy of the street

Through film and photos, NAI researcher Mats Utas aims at portraying the reality of life among the urban poor based at two different locations in Freetown. The photo exhibition entitled 'Pentagon: Street life and Survival in Freetown, Sierra Leone' includes both text and images that seek to display moments in everyday life and struggles. The documentary 'Jew Man Busines' portrays another area through the eyes of three young men. In both settings, the earlier civil war is a clear backdrop, as many of those photographed participated in it as militia and rebel soldiers.
