Selected works from Charles Okereke's 'Canal People' Series are now showing at the Calouste Gulbenkian Museum in Lisbon, Portugal as part of the 9th Edition of the Bamako Photography Encounters  touring exhibition tagged 'For a Sustainable World'.

“For a sustainable world” is the selected theme for this year’s Bamako Encounters, a theme appropriate to a continent where many countries are far from reaching the emission levels stipulated under the Kyoto Agreement and the consequent implications in terms of environmental policies, economic decisions, defending the environment, regulating agriculture, fishing and industrial production. Dozens of photographers responded to the challenge set and bore witness to a world demanding drastic solutions.
