The Plight of Nyuot

The Plight of Nyuot

'Disposable People' is a previous project I did earlier in the year, where I explored the issue of modern day slavery looking at themes of identity such as the African diaspora. This portrait is of a girl who experienced repeated sexual assault towards her as a child, while she was held captive as a slave. She later in life became free from the hold of her masters, and was able to start a new way of living, yet still scarred by the events and memories of her childhood.
