Tunde Alabi-Hundeyin: Creating a counter-narrative

January 17, 2019

Tunde talks to us about how he works to create a counter-narrative to the objectification of children in the Global South by international media organisations and the charity sector.

We discuss the photographic representation of disasters such as famine in the global south, the common current narrative, and how this is changing for the better in some organisations. Later in the episode, we talk about the importance of this in the context of immigration. Tunde also tells us about his fieldwork experiences in Nigeria, and how he balances PhD life with family life, while his two kids sleep through the episode in the background!

His work can be accessed via or @tundehundeyin on Instagram and Twitter. His full Bio and more information is on our website,
