These 25 photos were featured in the exhibition and workshop titled Chinese Firms and Employment Dynamics in Africa. They were chosen for the specific purpose of the exhibition out of a set of pictures that I took in Angola and Ethiopia as part of the IDCEA (Industrial Development, Construction and Employment in Africa) project, commissioned by S.O.A.S., School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London.

The IDCEA team conducted 4 years of research on employment patterns and outcomes in the infrastructure construction and manufacturing sectors in Angola and Ethiopia, where large-scale surveys of workers and extensive qualitative research were conducted between 2016 and 2018.
