Libya’s Badlands: FT Magazine report from Southern Libya

Libya's Badlands: FT Magazine report from Southern Libya

A sample of the spread from Borzou Daragahi and my feature on Southern #Libya for the Financial Times Magazine – one of the coolest assignments I’ve done in a long time.

It was so great to work with the FT Mag on this story last November. Over two months in the ‘post-production’, we’ve been waiting excitedly to see this one in print for some time now.

Southern Libya is so remarkable, wild and remote. It’s rare that I travel somewhere these days where people have rarely, or never seen a journalist before. Southern Libya was just like this, so this report is quite rare and well worth a read.
