MOST RECENT

This image was taken at the very start of my Cruel Earth project. In Burkina Faso in 2010. We'd been hunting for days for locations. My fixer was threatening to resign (I later sacked him anyway: he was a nightmare) because he was in fear of his life and our lives (partly justified but not completely: my instincts were not on high alert which is my main indicator). And the trip had been a hard slog generally. I think at this point my videographer was also very ill - possibly with malaria - so it was just me and my driver out this morning. I came across these young guys, some of whom were getting ready to go down the hole. This location being a gold mining area. My general approach to making images has changed enormously since then but this image, which I like, was most definitely a part of the process to get to where I have now reached.

🎥Quote:
Danny Archer: Sometimes I wonder... will God ever forgive us for what we've done to each other? Then I look around and I realize... God left this place a long time ago.

🎥Trivia:
De Beers Group, which is the largest player in the diamond trade, has expressed reservations that the film will reduce public demand for diamonds. De Beers maintains the trade in conflict diamonds has been reduced from 4% to 1% by the Kimberley Process and it has been suggested the company pushed for the film to contain a disclaimer saying the events are fictional and in the past. De Beers has denied this.

DJIMON HOUNSOU
Born April 24, 1964 Cotonou, Benin West Africa ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
West African actor who gained widespread recognition for his roles in Amistad (1997), Gladiator (2000) and Blood Diamond (2003). Hounsou began his career in the late 1980s as a model in Paris for fashion designer Thierry Mugler. On a trip to Los Angeles with Mugler, he met directors, photographers and high profile celebrities and caught the acting bug While enrolled in acting classes he took small acting jobs in music videos for Madonna, Janet Jackson and Paula Abdul. In 1997, however, it was his work with director Steven Spieberg for the film Amistad in which Hounsou had his break-out moment. The role of Cinque, the slave ship mutineer, brought him critical acclaim and a Golden Globe nomination. In 2002, his portrayal of Mateo, an artist with AIDS in the urban drama In America, brought him further praise with an Academy Award nomination for Best Actor in a Supporting Role, making him the fourth black male to be nominated for an Oscar. And, in 2003, his work in Blood Diamond with director Edward Zwick and co-star Leonardo DiCaprio, garnered him yet another Academy Award nomination for Best Actor in a Supporting Role. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #djimonhounsou#blooddiamond#benin@africanarchives#BlackHollywood#africa#VintageAfrica#History#BlackHistory#BlackHistoryMonth#BLM#BlackLivesMatter#AfricanHistory#VintageBlack#blackfilms#blackfilm#blackcinema#blackmovies#blackfilmmakers#blackfilmhistory#academyaward#goldenglobe#amistad

Blood diamond - based on a true story, echoes the tragedy and complexity of the diamond trade. Despite the Kimberley Process certification being introduced in 2000, it fails to address the clear links between diamonds, violence and tyranny, rendered it hopelessly ineffectual. In effect, it has become an accomplice to diamond laundering. In addition, most certificates on the market are fake. Despite intensive efforts over nine years by a determined coalition of NGOs, the sad truth is that most consumers still cannot be sure where their diamonds come from.

The #aryglediamond is mined in Western Australia. The Argyle Diamond Mine Indigenous Land Use Agreement was held up as an example of best practice, providing royalties and employment to the indigenous people. Education is the best tool consumers have to tackle #blooddiamond trade.
