+ work

Rwanda, a country in central Africa and scene of a genocide in 1994, is still a place of unremoved pain. Rwanda, also known as the country of a thousand hills, is the place where lightning is observed the most in the world. The artist participated in a project called 'Road Show' and took pictures of the streets while riding a motorcycle taxi in the Rwandan city, Kigali. The act of taking photos with a strobe on the streets––a very touristic activity––and the sound of thunder, remind us of the shots of the past that once echoed in the city.
