“Yasmin delivered a fascinating talk on the cultural rituals and beliefs of the Southern Sudanese tribes.  She provided a much deeper understanding of the way the Kordofan wrestling matches were visually captured through George Rodger’s landmark photographic story. A really interesting discussion of anthropology and photography, enjoyed by all” David Hill, Nov 2018. 

“Yasmin, Just to say a big thank you for your wonderful talk on George. Not only was it very informative on the people of Kordofan but you also were very understanding of George‚Äôs compassionate nature and character,  it is as if you had known him personally – very touching” Jonathan Rodger, Nov 2018.
