Nicola Lo Calzo
INSIDE NIGER

»Inside Niger« questions the relationship between water and work in one of the most fragile regions of the planet, the Sahel. The documentary is taking place in the regions of Tillaberi and Dosso in Niger, now banned to travellers. Its main focus is the population that lives and works on the borders of the eponymous river, the Mecca of trade, culture and Sahelian mythology.

With reference to the great tradition of the portrait that runs from August Sander until now, and through an original reappropriation of the African photography, Nicola Lo Calzo composes an eclectic portrait of this river's universe. In the latter, through the value of work, every subject seems to find his own identity. The people photographed belong to these living places of memory, in a game of correspondences with the surrounding landscape.
