“Today in South Sudan, a catastrophe is taking place unnoticed. A succession of natural disasters has combined with decades of civil wars to leave more than a quarter of the population dependent on aid to survive. Half million people face starvation today. “The world seems unconcerned, or unaware,” I wrote this statement in 1993 and now its happening again now in 2016.
It is happening all over again, with some of the key players from the last civil conflict before the creation of the country, 5 years ago. Going through my archives, I have returned to Southern Sudan, in 1993, but also in 2003. This is a documentation of the past, which is playing again. Putting the present and past side by side, I want people to see that this is a continuing cycle of madness. How hunger, drought, and civil war is killing the population, thus destroy this civilization.”
