Overview

Photojournalist Robin Hammond is haunted by the people he has walked away from. His subjects are the victims of unspeakable atrocities, and they, he notes matter-of-factly, are still there — in the conflict zone, afflicted — after he’s left. Through his work, Hammond makes all of us witnesses, as well. Thus, he proposes, “ignorance cannot be used as an alibi for inaction,” and “we are all complicit.” Having taken on the bleakest of all possible subjects, Hammond finds redemption in the humanity of his images.
