About

Krista is a Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist (2002 New York Times – Breaking News) currently based in Tucson, Arizona. Her projects usually focus on youth-related issues. She also pursues stories on fertility issues and the state of mental health in the United States. A graduate of San Francisco State University, she is currently launching a whimsical photo greeting card line full of sarcastic humor under the label ‘nJoy Studios’. In August of 2007, Krista became the Photography Director of Voices, Inc., a Tucson, Arizona based non-profit (http://www.voicesinc.org). The mission of the organization, founded in 1999, is to mentor Tucson youth as they tell the stories of their lives through words and pictures. When she’s not on assignment, you might catch her screaming by you on her mountain bike or join her on a never-ending search for the best chicken fried steak.

Nigeria: proper clothing for women

Greetings! I’m putting this post out in search of some advice on proper clothing for foreign (anglo) women traveling through Nigeria. My dearest friend is traveling to Nigeria later this month on a fellowship with the International Center for Journalists and asked me to post this to the kind folks on Lightstalkers:

“I’ll be traveling to Nigeria for a couple of weeks at the end of the month. We’ll be in major cities: Lagos, Abuja, Kano and Kaduna. As the country is 50 percent Muslim, I’m told long skirts are best for women traveling there; pants are ‘acceptable’ for foreign women. I’d like to hear what other travelers think. What constitutes ‘long’ for a skirt — is below the knee acceptable? Are pants so bad? And what about sleeves — I know better than to go sleeveless, but do I have to be covered to the wrist? Of course I’ll bring scarves for head coverings. Any advice for the woman traveler to Nigeria would be much appreciated!”
