Artist's Description

Officially the civil war has ended in Congo. Sadly, in reality, this is untrue. Militias ravage villages, raping women, abducting young men for combat, dismembering the population and creating massive displacement. Everyday. Those who make it to Goma live amongst the lava infused earth, a result of a massive eruption two years ago. Water and food are scarce, homes are built of mud or flattened food tins. These kids live and play amongst trucks half swallowed by lava.
