Endlessly changing irrigation spaces. Visual essay by Mariasole Pepa

“Everything in Sudan is related to land, water, and their inevitable and complicated combination”.

This visual essay captures changing Sudanese irrigations spaces just before the eruption of the war on the 15th of April – the pictures were taken by the author during February and March 2023 as part of the project AtlaSahel. Considering water and land as intriguing geographical lenses to explore the societal transformation in Sudan, the following work is an exploration of a multi-site photographic exhibition presented at the at CEDEJ Khartoum in March 2023 and at the Museum of Geography at Padua University in April 2023.
The exhibition aims to illuminate the multiplicity of  irrigation systems in the country and focuses particularly on the most recent changes. The photos were taken during fieldwork jointly conducted by the Faculty of Geography and Environment at the University of Khartoum and the University of Padua*. The research took us to the White Nile Sugar Company, Kenana Sugar Company, Gezira, the Chinese Agricultural Technology Demonstration Center in Al-Fao, Guineed (Sudanese Sugar Company), Al-Waha (DAL Group), and up to River Nile State in Ad Damir (Almukakrab Agricultural Scheme), Atbara, Berber (Al Rajhi International for Investment) e Shendi (GLB Group).
