In this week’s Newsweek International, a poignant and thoughtful look at the refugee journey by Shannon Jenson.
How do you represent a journey in an image? Thirty thousand men, women and children from Sudan’s Blue Nile State sought an end to nine months of terror and trauma when they crossed the border into neighboring South Sudan this past June. They joined a population of 70,000 refugees who preceded them in fleeing Khartoum’s deadly military campaign to crush the northern remnant of the Southern liberation movement.
Images from Peter DiCampo’s Life Without Lights project ran with Bjorn Lomborg’s Newsweek piece on the Rio+20 environmental summit. DiCampo’s project documenting global energy poverty will be shown in an “experiential photography and multimedia exhibition” at Rio’s Museu da Republica from June 14 through Sept. 23.
