Eufrika Photo Report
After two episodes from Cameroon’s Nkongsamba, Bafoussam and Yaoundé, eufrika.org photographers throw a new light on one of the countries most important industrial cities. Limbe is located in the southwestern part of Cameroon at the sea and with its oil production, the city’s industrial branch contributes enormously to the country’s GDP. In this episode, daily street scenes of that coastal urban centre are put into focus with its stunning fishing promenade and the oil platforms in the background. That scenery illustrates impressively the two conflicting activities of Limbe’s urban population, fisheries on the one and oil production off the coast on the other hand: The urban confrontation of fish and oil.
