Synopsis

One Big Family Sharing Life in an African Village by Ifeoma Onyefulu, Ifeoma Onyefulu

A little Nigerian girl describes her village, and the way it is divided into ogbo, or age groups. Each ogbo is assigned to a different task, from that of her brother which helps sweep clean the village ilo, to her grandfather's, which spreads words of wisdom to the villagers. Ifeoma Onyefulu's beautiful photographs once again capture the age-old customs of Nigerian village life.
