liberia 77



Imagine life with no photographs. No smiling faces. No family snapshots. No record of your past. Welcome to Liberia…When Canadian brothers Jeff and Andrew Topham return to the war torn West African country of their childhood to re-shoot their father’s photos from the 70s, they find a nation whose own photographic history was destroyed by war. Suddenly their tattered envelope of family photos takes on a significance they never could have imagined. Liberia ’77 shows how despite time, war, distance and culture, photography connects us all.
