Invisible Borders 2010, another journey of courage by Nigerian photographers


The team of Invisible Borders 2010 are ready to take off for this year's edition. It has been quite a struggle, especially considering that we only had 5 months after the trip in 2009 to organise for this one. Our plan was to move on to a bigger agenda, so unlike the first trip, we decided to call for support and sponsorship from various organisations, but with a firm resolution never to allow this vision be affected by the shot-comings of the funding organisations. We are very grateful for those organisation who answered our call, the value of your support can never be over- emphasized.

As for those who could not contribute, we hope you see the need to do so in 2011 or 2012. But whatever happens, this vision will continue to be alive.

I want to use this opportunity to thank these brave Nigerian artists (Amaize Ojeikere, Ray Daniels Okeugo, Uche James-Iroha, Lucy Azubuike, Charles Okereke, Uche Okpa-Iroha, Chidimma Nnorom, Emeka Okereke, Adenike Ojeikere, Unoma Geise and Chriss Aghana Nwobu)who despite the internal challenges on our profession, were able to severe themselves from the daily hustle and bustle to partake in this vision. I personally believe that you do this not because of what you will gain today, but for the foresight that you have of today's tomorrow. Even at that, you all have gone a step further to not just dreaming, but to be the ones who will make sure that dream becomes tangible. I am excited, happy and honoured to be making this trip with you all. It will be as much fun as can be possible while our cameras will not stop short of whatever sweetens our eyes, mind and emotions.

We take off on the 27th of April 2010. This is the first posting on this blog which will be hosting this trip. We will keep everyone up to date with this blog.We are traveling in a 14-seater ford van, so we regret that there is a limit to how many people can join us on this trip :), but at the end of each day in the journey, we will be bringing a handful of images and texts through this blog so that you could also feel as if you are in this journey with us.

Thank you and Let's go there!

Emeka Okereke.

Remember it's not what life brings to you but more what you bring to life. Good luck with the journey and post loads of images for all of us to see.
