I took these photographs as I was working as an aid worker in East Jebal Mara, Darfur. I wanted to show the pervervence of the Dafuri people in the midst of ongoing conflict. I was not interested in documenting the graphic nature of the conflict but more the strenght of the people I worked alongside continueing to live and survive. This was a rural area isolated in the mountains in the center of Darfur, controlled and protected by the Sudanese Liberation Army/Movement. While I was there many villages were destroyed by the government and many more people died. In the aftermath of each traumatic attack the people would search for safer areas further in the mountains, to plant fields, to feed their families, to struggle on. Since I left the government has expelled all international aid agencies from the mountains and little is known about what is happening there. There are credible reports that many of the villages I lived and worked in were destroyed and now under government control.
