Grassroots photographs

Wen Ling is a photographer who posts some of his photos at Ziboy about his life in Beijing. A Nigerian in Los Angeles, writing in The Happy Lagosian blog offers a photographic record of life in Nigeria's largest city.

Both offer an individual's vision of life "at home." For Americans who don't get to Lagos or Beijing, these photos are glimpses of everyday life that don't appear in textbooks or official publications. I recommend these blogs because I think the images help humanize the institutions and issues our students study.
