Photographer Glenna Gordon provided the image (below) to accompany Liberia’s inclusion on a recent Foreign Policy (FP) listing of failed states. She was not impressed by the piece – this is what she had to say:

“A couple of weeks ago, Foreign Policy ran one of those not-all-that-informed lists they called Postcards from Hell: Images from the World’s Most Failed States. In my book, a list that includes Yemen and Somalia alongside Ivory Coast and Liberia isn’t going to tell us that much […] Thanks FP, for often providing great news and analysis, and every now and then providing crappy link bait.”
