Rwanda in photographs - death then, life now


How can a country express the complexities of life after genocide? The Rwanda in photographs project contested and complicated the ways in which Rwanda has been represented internationally.

In Rwanda, twenty years after the violence that killed up to a million people, writers, artists, filmmakers and journalists have been working hard to communicate difficult choices made by the government, local organisations and civilians whilst reconstructing the country. Much has changed: a generation of young people has grown up since 1994, and Rwanda has experienced unprecedented economic success.  However, internationally the country is still primarily associated with mass violence.
