Side by Side | Carrying sharks in Mogadishu by Grarup 2012 and Omar 2010

Jan Grarup’s series The Mayor of Mogadishu featured on Photo District News here.  There’s a related article as well.

Frame 3 of the slideshow shows a man carrying a shark on the streets of Mogadishu. Striking scene even if you’ve seen it before.

Reminded me of Reuters stringer Feisal Omar’s 2011 World Press Photo Daily Life single prize winning photo.

Grarup’s and Omar’s photos both appear having been taken in the same street.
