    Northern Ghana Life (Photo Book)

    Since 2016, Nuku Studio and Noorderlicht (House of Photography in The Netherlands) have been collaborating on the project “Northern Ghana Life” (working title). 11 Ghanaian and international photographers have made a visual documentation of the society and landscape of Northern Ghana, as part of a research project with four universities, including University of Ghana in Legon and the University for Development Studies (UDS) in Wa and Tamale and six PhD students who conducted research into the society and history of Northern Ghana, specifically on two peoples: the Dagomba and the Gonja.

    The project results in the launch of a book and an exhibition in September 2018 as part of Nuku Photo Festival Ghana, the country’s first festival for photographic encounters, exchanges, and story-telling.

    “Northern Ghana has rarely been the subject of collaborative photographic research, and in a historical and a photographic sense we may even go as far as to call it a terra incognita. The stories by the photographers invite us to explore the diverse and dynamic region that is Northern Ghana. They provide a visual interpretation of a largely undocumented landscape, and document its current state-of-affairs for future generations,” says Nii Obodai, Founder of Nuku Studio and Director of Nuku Photo Festival.

    The photography project is in collaboration with an academic project involving four universities (University of Ghana in Legon, University of Development Studies in Wa and Tamale, Leiden University and University of Groningen, The Netherlands), and six PhD students who conducted research into the society and history of Northern Ghana, specifically on two peoples: the Dagomba and the Gonja.

    The works of photographers Abdulai Adam (Ghana), Dennis Akuoku-Frimpong (Ghana), Geoffrey Buta (Ghana), Peter DiCampo (USA), Eric Gyamfi (Ghana), Francis Kokoroko (Ghana), Benedicte Kurzen (France), Gerard Nartey (Ghana), Seton Nicholas (Ghana), Nii Obodai (Ghana), and Patrick Willocq (France) in this book allow a nuanced and visually dynamic photographic insight into the richness, beauty, and uniqueness of the region.

    Guests of the Ayatollah: The First Battle in the West’s War with Militant Islam (Hardcover)

    From the best-selling author of Black Hawk Down comes a riveting, definitive chronicle of the Iran hostage crisis, America’s first battle with militant Islam. On November 4, 1979, a group of radical Islamist students, inspired by the revolutionary Iranian leader Ayatollah Khomeini, stormed the U.S. embassy in Tehran. They took fifty-two Americans hostage, and kept nearly all of them hostage for 444 days.

    In Guests of the Ayatollah, Mark Bowden tells this sweeping story through the eyes of the hostages, the soldiers in a new special forces unit sent to free them, their radical, naïve captors, and the diplomats working to end the crisis. Bowden takes us inside the hostages’ cells and inside the Oval Office for meetings with President Carter and his exhausted team. We travel to international capitals where shadowy figures held clandestine negotiations, and to the deserts of Iran, where a courageous, desperate attempt to rescue the hostages exploded into tragic failure. Bowden dedicated five years to this research, including numerous trips to Iran and countless interviews with those involved on both sides.

    Guests of the Ayatollah is a detailed, brilliantly re-created, and suspenseful account of a crisis that gripped and ultimately changed the world. y9
