Snapshots: Liberian Girl

Written By: Jamelia Mmari—One of the first articles I remember reading, and re-reading in MIMI, was Snapshots: Angola Carnival 2oo6 by photographer José Silva Pinto. I have always longed to see more representations of day-to-day life on the continent in the magazine, and with the revival of the Snapshots column on the blog, I am hoping to do just that. This photograph of a Liberian girl captures doe-eyed youth so perfectly, I was compelled to chose it for my first Snapshots blog entry.

If you are have photographs of African day-to-day life, and would like to publish them in MIMI, you can write to mimimagazineonline[at]
