276 people generously gave of their time to reflect on the tragic event that occurred in Nigeria in April 2014. They were free to decide whether to participate or not, and they were also free to take their own picture. They are free people with freewill. Each person, selflessly, took a self-portrait to document their participation in this project. Their self-portraits were printed on a cotton fabric to be exhibited to the public.
As those fabric-printed self-portraits will eventually fray and disappear, photographs were taken of them to be presented in this iBook. The fabric’s texture and imperfections can be seen merged as one with the portraits.
