There are many ways to Advocacy and PHOTOGRAPHSY is one of it.
Late 2018, I started exploring a new space I discovered in Lagos State which is heap of DIRT occupying every streets,
roads and major bus/stops in Lagos State and nothing is done about it. At the time it seem like lawma was no more. So I decided to use my
PHOTOGRAPHS TO ADVOCATE for a CLEAN LAGOS. Fastforward to early 2019
new things started in Bariga Local council Development Area of Lagos State, were I live and where also happens to be my primary area of focus for the cleaner Lagos advocacy project . And last week as
I went out to "Monitor Everyday Activities in my Neighborhood" I discovered that chairman @Hon. Kolade David Alabi introduced *Back-Up Operations Clean Up In
The 8 Wards In Bariga* now Bariga Community don't have to pay to dispose their waste. Gaspard will be speaking at #PCRiC Conference.

Last weekend was the first tear-gas-free weekend in 11 weekends. Organizers estimate that 1.7 million took to the streets on Sunday in an illegal, but peaceful, protest.
I have been taking a break and now that I’ve had the chance to breathe, here’s a photo I shot for my story about Lennon Walls for @nikkeiasianreview. The walls are spontaneous, temporary displays of resistance that have sprung up around the city, displaying notes of encouragement and support for the protests, as well as criticism against the police and the government. I visited 8 different walls for the story. Link in bio.
EDIT: A few hours before I posted this photo, there was a knife attack at a Lennon Wall in Tseung Kwan O. The assailant was allegedly attacking them for their political views and has been arrested. Three were wounded, with one 26-year-old woman in critical condition. Check @hongkongfp for the full story and updates.

In honour of #WorldElephantDay we're sharing this powerful shot by #WPYalumni Aaron Gekoski, which frames Asian elephants picking their way through a cleared oil palm plantation.
In Sabah, the palm oil trade is a main driver for deforestation, squeezing elephants out of the forest and into plantations. As reports of elephants being poisoned or shot by plantation workers become increasingly common, Asia must face one of its largest conservation challenges – mitigating human–elephant conflict.

_ Pencarian Korban Tenggelam Sungai Batanghari _
update: korban sudah ditemukan tengah malam tadi. info dari @kabarkampungkito
Reposted from @jambiimaji
Hari ini adalah hari kedua pencarian korban tenggelam di Sungai Batanghari, Jambi. Sudah dua hari juga petugas Basarnas setempat hilir mudik melakukan penyisiran.
Hingga sore tadi, pencarian terhadap korban masih terus diupayakan.
Keluarga korban, kerabat, dan warga juga terlihat berbondong-bondong memadati kawasan sekitar lokasi pertama kali korban dilaporkan tenggelam.
Berdasarkan informasi yang diterima, korban bukanlah warga sekitar. Namun pengunjung.
Semoga korban bisa segera ditemukan. Dan kejadian ini bisa menjadi pembelajaran bersama bahwa sungai terpanjang di Sumatera itu bukanlah tempat wisata "biasa". Mari kita desak Pemerintah Daerah untuk terus menggiatkan sosialisasi sadar bencana dan segera memasang plang zona larangan berenang di sejumlah titik kawasan yang dianggap berbahaya.
