Historical Context:
"For over a century people have been widely exposed to photographs documenting war and conflict in countries half a world away. Much less common are intimate, visual updates revealing where those war-torn communities are years after peace is reached. This series of images illustrates a post-war era for tow regions in East Africa- Northern Uganda and Rwanda- both having experienced atrocities where their own countries' people brutally turned on one another." - Tonia Hauser
