Home and Away, is personal project documenting the lives of the displaced in South Sudan. The Sudan, after an almost half a century long civil war, was finally divided into two countries.

Out of this break up, South Sudan became the world’s newest country in 2011. However, this was a short lived celebration. In December 2013, a political power struggle broke out and as a result 300,000 people are estimated to have been killed in the war. Inter-ethnic warfare that in some cases predates the war of independence, didn’t stop with declaration of independence, and were the cause of a new civil war in South Sudan. About 3 million people have been displaced in a country of 12 million, with about 2 million internally displaced and about 1 million having fled to neighboring countries, especially Kenya, Sudan, and Uganda. Since November 2016, I have been living and working in South Sudan, travelling to all the Camps for Displaced people, also known as Protection of Civilians Camps (PoCs).
