Photographer's Note

A photo of a minister I interviewed during an environmental survey while in Liberia. He was living on very little, just a small plot of food and what he got from preaching.

The town he lives in is Camp 4, a former company town housing people working for Lamco, a mining company before the war. Lampco stopped mining when the war started, and non Liberians left the country. As with every town in Liberia this town was destroyed by either rebel or government forces, perhaps several times as various rebel groups came through.

The people in this site do not have farms and had the worst living standards I saw while traveling in the country. There is no mining or other major occupations in the area so people get by living in these vacated houses.
