Looking through latest contact sheets from uganda where i’ve been working on project with @humanityinclusionuk @geneva_academy @legacy_of_war on the rights of people living with disabilities in conflict. thank you @ilfordphoto @_c_p_i for your support in making this project possible.

Interesting exhibition at the humaitarium @redcrossmuseum in geneva - war in cities. the exhibition places the original artefacts from images of conflict along side the original photographs. for example in one scene of a destroyed street in iraq, a destroyed bike you see in the photograph is there at the exhibition. interesting idea that brings the view closer to the stories #warincities #humaitarium #icrc #geneva #exhibition @legacy_of_war

Today i’m starting the edit of my work from uganda, where i was documenting the life of south sudanese refugees living with disabilities. a stark reminder of where life and survival is simply a handful of beans @humanityinclusionuk @geneva_academy @legacy_of_war #refugees #southsudan #uganda #disability #humanrights #disabilityrights #legacyofwar

An american exodus by dorothea lange and paul taylor.
not just one of the most important books in photography but for me personally a benchmark in photographic activism and humanitarian documentary. and the combination of academic research by taylor with lange’s photography. i could go on and on about this book..... #photography #photographybooks #documentaryphotography #anamericanexodus #dorothealange #paultaylor #inspiration

Yesterday went back to see olive for a day of cooking and celebrating! whenever possible i love to cook and eat with those who’s stories i document. so was the best treat to spend the day with olive. as i’ve already said - one of the most incredible women ive ever met. on top of that discovered it was her birthday- so we had a birthday party! only two of her family members survived the genocide in 1994; a cousin and a brother-in-law. when she told them she was having a birthday party they said ‘are you dreaming!’ but they traveled to join her and together we cooked, ate and celebrated her 50th in style. i hope olive enjoyed the day as much as i did - one of the best days ever! 🎉 🎂 💕 @one_armed_chef

In over a decade of documenting the impact of war on civilians i don’t think i’ve ever heard a story like olive’s. two days after meeting her, i’m still trying to process it. the most incredible woman she told me her story of horror, loss, survival, suffering, redemption and forgiveness (in that order!). tomorrow i head home full of stories and will start to write them, though i don’t think i’ll ever do olive’s justice. in case you hadn’t noticed i’m a little overwhelmed.
i think we also saw a lot of ourselves in each other. there is much we have shared. we struck up a friendship and are now firmly brother and sister (i did call her aunt but she corrected me!!). when i left i said “because of your story i leave stronger than when i arrived” and i meant it.
