Rwanda, 1994

Rwanda, 1994 – “This is a picture of a man who had just been liberated from a Hutu death camp were mainly members of the Tutsi tribe were being incarcerated, being starved, beaten, abused and systematically killed. This man happened to be a Hutu himself, but because he didn’t support the genocide, he was subjected to the same treatment. On the most basic level, I hope that people when they look at this work, will engage themselves with it and not shut down, not turn away from it, but realize that their opinion counts for something, that they become part of a constituency, and people who have the power to make decisions that affect the lives of thousands of people know that there’s a constituency forming out there, and they have to do something about it.”
