Tropical Gift, Nigeria
2010


This photographic essay by Christain Lutz captures the closed world of those dealing with oil and gas in Nigeria. His sharp approach conveys malaise born of the consequences that the economic interests in question have on civil societies. The result is a bitter statement laying bare the unequal power relations between the dominators and the dominated, a dark picture of how the overly abundant mineral resources of Africa are being exploited.

During three successive trips to Nigeria in 2009 and 2010, Christian Lutz documented the business of oil and gas among dominants and dominated. On the first hand, he takes pictures of businessmen expatriated from the capital Abudja in their private life, at work and in the middle of negociations with some Nigerian state employees. On the other hand, he investigates local pollution in the Niger, where the oil lies.
