The Price of Life
In 2008 Australian freelance photojournalist, Nigel Brennan travelled to Somalia to document and report on the health and political state of the nation.
In a twist, while telling the Somalian story; a story of the food crisis; the 20 year civil war; and drought, Nigel Brennan became the story. Nigel was kidnapped and held for ransom for $1.5US million for 462 days.
This compelling exhibition The Price of Life presents the true life story of Photojournalist, Nigel Brennan, the longest held living captive in Australian history, outside of a prisoner of war situation.
