On one of the thousand hills of Rwanda lies the village of Byumba. Here live 22 families, and like in the rest of this small African country, over half of them are children, many without a father. Actually, almost no men live in these brown clay huts. Those that do, rotate between the women—or so one of the men whispers.
Two years ago the village was nothing but mud and rocky outcrops. Since then, the Red Cross built more than fifty small houses for the poorest families. They have given the children a roof over their heads, rainwater tanks, livestock, access to school and health insurance.
This was my first ever assignment in Africa, for the International Red Cross. It was a nice beginning for me. I had followed Mutuzo who was sent to collect wood. On our way back, thunderclouds gathered and we barely reached the house before the cloudburst hit the hill. As soon as we were inside, we started laughing.
We are currently offering photographs in two different formats:
- Classic: 40x30cm or 50x40cm (depending on image)
- Large: 80x60cm
Each photographs' size has been decided in collaboration with the photographer to make sure the final piece is in the optimal dimension to suit the work.
All prints are produced on Baryta Hahnemühle 315g, on Epson Pigment Inkjet. All prints have been approved by the photographer. We work closely with each photographer to ensure every edition reflects their intentions.
Each print will come with its own "story" printed on museum archive quality paper.
For more info about our printing process, please read about our partnership with the legendary photo lab Picto.
The edition is not limited based on quantity but based on time. Each sale will present a unique selection of photographs and formats that will only be available for the duration of the sale. The limited time is part of what make our prints special.
