Kathryn Cook

THEY ONCE WERE CHILDREN (Rwanda, 2008)

While the rest of the world looked on, in the mid-1990s hundreds of thousands of Tutsis were massacred by extremist Hutus in Rwanda. The number of victims is estimated at between half a million and a million. The Rwandan genocide has left behind a whole generation of orphans who are traumatised by this bloodbath. Alongside their dreams for the future, in her photographs Kathryn Cook reveals how every day for these living victims is shaped by their memories of the genocide.
