Andrew Esiebo

One of the photographers featured in the new issue of PRIVATE is Nigerian photojournalist Andrew Esiebo who provides a series of photograhs from Lagos, including this image of a billboard. The sales pitch, while humorous, also is serious.

PS: On the seriousness of closing "the sanitation gap" between the developing and developed world see, for instance, this 2002 report - Disease Control Priorities in Developing Countries - from the Disease Control Priority Project, "a joint effort of the World Health Organization (WHO), the World Bank, and the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH)." (Quoted phrases are from this press release.)
