When looking at a picture, asking “What does it NOT show?” is as important as observing what it shows. Complex realities, such as those of Samburu people, their livestock and wildlife in Kenya, appear by posing the key question ‘Why?’


Zully Rosadio holds a bachelor degree in Biology as well as in Social and Cultural Anthropology. She is currently doing her master’s degree at the Social Ecology Institute in Vienna. An enthusiast of visual-textual language, her blog features reviews of comic books and her own art.

This is part of a series of four blog posts written by master students of the political ecology course, part of the UAB-ICTA’s Master’s Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies in Environmental, Economic and Social Sustainability. The essays were inspired by prize winning photos of the World Press Photography Awards 2018.
