Somalia 1992

    Newer Older

    American soldiers and journalists walked openly and casually down the streets of Mogadishu and outlying towns like this one in 1992 before al Qaeda-linked gangs such as Aideed's unleashed their campaign to halt aid. I shot from the back of a moving pick-up and had only a 50mm lens on my ancient fully manual Nikon.
