"Evidence of Resilience" - Portraits
Easter Africa (Rwanda, Burundi and Uganda) an area plagued with post war post genocide stress syndrome. I was invited by Spark Micro Grants through Global Good Fund to follow and visit the villages they are present in for a month in 2015. I decided before hand that I wanted to focus on portraits of the members of the different villages but I wanted to make portraits that connected with the individual and their environment. I decided to be ambitious in terms of equipment though I had to travel as light as possible since I didn't have any assistant(s) with me. I also wanted to create a non typical portrait though not intrusive nor controlled. The trip lasted for a month and I was very happy with the result and the success in staying focused during this whole trip. I also shot documentary pictures of the villages as well as made video recording interviews.
