The house that Doe built. A mansion long abandoned, it was originally commissioned by master sergeant Samuel Doe during his nine-year reign as the president of Liberia. The building was scheduled for completion in the summer of 1991, less than one year before Doe was murdered in a coup. Shot in Zwedru, Liberia (the photograph; Doe was killed in a brutal manner in Monrovia).
