More beautiful photos from Africa

On November 7, 2008, in Africa, photography, by Karen Grepin

A few weeks back, I posted a link to some photos from chronicling the spread of multi-drug resistant tuberculosis across Africa. The famed fashion photographer – Rankin – has now added his skills to the mix in capturing the faces and challenges of Africa.

In his photos, recently taken a refugee camp in the “Democratic” Republic of Congo, he captures the human side of this conflict, which has raged throughout the region for over a decade. Rather than capturing these people in the typical milieu we have come to expect from this type of situation, he sets their photos against a white backdrop, leaving us unable to escape the personalities and emotions of the people in the photos.
