About Project

The project I’m working on examines the effects of substance misuse on the lives of young people in my neighborhood. I have documented Yonela’s life, a well-known football player in my village—who is now a “Phara” he has a drug-related life transformation. I have depicted both his living situation and his daily activities in my images.
