Traces & Omens

Pep Bonet

FAITH IN CHAOS (2002-2003)

It was said of the rebels in Sierra Leone, 'If they'd have gotten their hands on God, they'd have killed Him too.' The civil war which raged there from 1991 to 2001 is counted as one of the bloodiest in African history. Tens of thousands of civilians were killed, and hundreds of thousands more raped, mutilated, tortured or enslaved. Victims who had an arm or leg hacked off still dominate the street scene. Directly after the war was over, Pep Bonet went to Sierra Leone. In Faith in Chaos (2002-2003) he documented how the population, physically and psychologically scarred by their extreme experiences, sought to rebuild their lives. 'The determination of these victims of war and poverty leaves us all in the dust,' he says.
