(3/3) The girl imaged is Sesuna, her family fled the horrors of Eritrea and are living in a urban refugee community on the outskirts of Addis Ababa, segregated from Ethiopians and denied citizenship. This set of images are part of a wider assignment for the NGO, Christian Solidarity Worldwide (CSW) on life for Eritrean refugees inside Ethiopia.
I lived with this one community to make an intimate photographic essay and to conduct interviews with Eritrean survivors for CSW. This section was themed around masks to disengage from the impersonal images of refugees as faceless victims. Rather focusing on them as individuals with their own individual lives and stories. The children created their own photograph, decorating over the plain white masks, adding personalisation to each image. The interactive nature of the portraiture allowed for the process of documentation to be slowed down so the subject’s character and personality defined the final portrait.

I had a friend who lent me his truck for 3 months to drive around Botswana. I was there doing a project called : “The San: Aids and Dislocation in the Kalahari.” These woman worked in my friends house, and lived in a small shack on his farm. I photographed them in his kitchen when I first arrived. Three months later when I returned with my friends truck one of these woman had died of Aids and the other was no longer working there. I regret not knowing their names. #blackandwhite #blackandwhite_art

Bridge Jumping. Vijayawada, India.

It is the rainy season, malaria is endemic, on the border between Thailand and Burma, where uncountable thousands of refugees, migrants, and undocumented displaced people are condemned to foreign food rations, crowded camps, slavery sweatshop wages, abuse by authorities, and sifting through garbage to survive. This little market is busy because it is situated outside the Mawker Thei malaria clinic run by SMRU (Shokalo Malaria Research) on the Moi River, where Burmese, mostly Karen, people cross because of the free malaria treatment. I came here on a project entitled: Malaria and Human Rights on the Thai/Burma border. When people get sick they want to go home. These people have no home to go to.

Nizwa Camel Market, Oman
My passion for markets began when I was a small-town boy from Alberta, visiting Mexico with my parents. I vividly remember the strange-smelling food cooked and sold from tiny sidewalk stalls. I tasted my first fresh corn tortilla, fried and rolled around chopped oily onions, chicken and chiles, passed to me on a newspaper by a man with blackened leathery hands. I was fascinated with how quickly he stirred and flipped the sizzling morsels with one hand before scooping them up, all while fanning his coals with the other hand. Back in Canada, TV dinners were just becoming popular.

We conducted interviews with survivors, who courageously gave evidence and testimony about the torture camps inside Eritrea. For the safety of their families back in Eritrea, their identities had to be hidden. I therefore themed the images of those giving evidence around hands to keep anonymity whilst retaining personalisation. 
Hari, 26 was arrested for reading the Bible in Asmara, Errtriea. He was just 16 years old and taken to a Military Torture Camp where he refused to denounce his faith. He escaped in 2012, fled across the Eritrean desert and into Ethiopia. He spoke with incredible strength
