Dear Photo Lover

What autonomous thing comes into being when word saunters into image, language being so approximate and superfluous? This is an invocation, an evocative ballad by writer Emmanuel Iduma; a travelogue in response to collages by Frida Orupabo, found sound, and images from a range of sources. The address is made to an ‘intimate stranger’, one who traverses a black Atlantic, mindful of Edouard Glissant’s notion that ‘the landscape of your world is the world’s landscape. But its frontier is open’.
