Ebrima was born in a village in Gambia. After finishing high school he traveled to the United Kingdom to further his studies in literature and history. His academic pursuits gave him the realization that to really study history and the human condition he had to travel. During his travels he was introduced to photography and began documenting not only the places he saw but the lives of the people that he met. His travels brought him to Atlanta, GA where he has been for the past eight years. In Atlanta he found himself surrounded by creative minds who helped him develop his craft. During his time in Atlanta he has been involved in many artistic pursuits: from working as a vocalist for a reggae band, to making jewelry, to developing his skills as both a photographer and videographer. From Ebrima’s interest in studying people and documenting their stories Ebrima developed a journalism model which he calls street journalism – a form of self-taught journalism that allows those who are least often heard to have a voice. He not only speaks to those who are often not heard but he puts cameras in the hands of children. As a street journalist he documents community events. His first documentary, “Love will Keep us Together,” tells the stories of individuals who gathered together in support of the “Jena Six.” Filmmaking is only a part of his goal as a street journalist. His overarching vision and goals are to (1) document the positive characteristics of the African people and their descendents through film and photography and,(2) to develop a school of street journalism to educate and empower the children and youth in his community to tell the globe about life from their perspective.
