Eastern Nigerian Family Struggles

This iconic photograph, to an extremely mild degree, only begins to describe the struggle which most Eastern Nigerian families faced during the Biafran War. A man, relieved to have found and identified the corpse of a dead relative, settles to have his photograph taken by a foreign journalist as he peddles his family member home for a proper, traditional burial.

Region: Igbo heartland.

Circa: 1968.
