Slow Violence

We are once again grateful to a DP correspondent for bringing the work of Rob Nixon to our attention, in particular his research on  the environmentalism of the poor as recounted in Slow Violence. The book is on order (NOT from Amazon); for now, we turn to a 2011 interview which provides a concise summary of his core thesis. Images are from the studio of the Nigerian artist Jerry Buhari.
