Recovering from conflict and genocide more than 27 years ago, Rwanda is still excavating its genocide dead.

Existing behind a fence of corrugated metal partition lies a grave of bodies just a stone's throw from a bustling marketplace selling everyday items enjoyed the world over.


'The fence' examines the subconscious complexities many Rwandan locals juggle with as they go about their day knowing that behind the fence, lies a history many find difficult to discuss as they try to move forward. This remains difficult as many must pass, work and live within proximity of a site excavating an uncomfortable point in Rwanda's past.

These difficulties are often overlooked as Rwanda continues to search for lost relatives, friends and acquaintances in a country that still endures.

Photographing was completed for brief moments for as long as most people in the photos passed, leaving and returning within the same area.
