Rwanda: The 1993 Rwandan genocide left a scar on the nation with excavations regularly taking place to retrieve those who were lost. They continue to this day, and thousands will never know the fate of friends and relatives.
This long-term personal project investigates post-conflict societal issues and inherited socio- psychological problems. These photographs show the process of excavating Tutsi remains by a community effort from the Rwandan genocide nearly 25 years on. Only a corrugated metal fence separates the excavation site and locals.
Excavators are largely made up of volunteers and people of Hutu and Tutsi ancestry. The terms Hutu and Tutsi were introduced by colonial powers to divide Rwanda. These terms are now illegal to use.
