Hi everyone, this is @MagnumPhotos photographer @MichaelChristopherBrown. I’m honored to be a 2017 #InfinityAwards recipient! I’ll be posting images throughout the day from “Libyan Sugar.” All the images in the book (except on page 5) were taken with a camera phone. The zookeeper at the Tripoli zoo led me around, while the fighting was still raging in parts of the city—I slid the phone through the bars of the cage to make this picture. This shot was selected for the cover of the book not for the content, but for what the content may represent—in this case, an experience that tests strength, vitality, courage, etc.
