Rena Effendi – the oil industry’s effects on ordinary people’s lives

Posted in /Intercultural Communication/ by Liudmila Davydova on July 8, 2010

“Born in 1977 in Baku, Azerbaijan Rena Effendi’s first job, at the age of 19, was as a translator for the Azerbaijan International Oil Company,  a consortium of some of the world’s largest oil producers. This gave her financial independence, as the oil industry was the most lucrative employer for educated youth in Baku. Having gained an inside perspective, Effendi directed her gaze outward and began to take photographs in 2001, focussing on the oil industry’s effects on ordinary people’s lives.”
