“The Children of Bad Memories”

Photo by Nichole Sobecki / VII

On a recent assignment for The Sunday Times Magazine, Nichole Sobecki photographed Rwanda’s lost generation, children whose Tutsi mothers were raped by Hutu militia.

In those bloody 100 days between April and July 1994, ten percent of Rwanda’s population was killed and at least 250,000 women were raped. Of those who became pregnant, many aborted their babies or even killed them at birth, but the Survivors Fund — a British charity working in Rwanda — believes there are about 20,000 children of rape alive today. In Rwanda they are known as ‘les enfants mauvais souvenirs’, the children of bad memories. People blame them when the rains don’t come or when rivers flood, and they have grown up knowing that, for their mothers, they are reminders of the worst day in their lives. Now in their early 20s, this group of young adults are trying to find their way in the world, but it is not easy.

Join Maciek Nabrdalik and Gary Knight for a 4-day photography workshop in San Francisco this June!

Inspired by the teaching of Harvard Professor and landscape historian John Stilgoe, this June 21- June 24, 2018 workshop is about the acute observation of ordinary things in one of America’s most beautiful cities: San Francisco. The workshop will encourage you to become aware in everyday places, to see in utterly new ways, to enrich your life and your photography unexpectedly through the appreciation of what is around you every day. We encourage you to work on any kind of photography that you want to, whether it be street photography, narrative, portraiture or urban landscape. The workshop will be held during San Francisco’s LGBT Pride Parade.

Between the Lines examines the over policed and under protected, life between us and them: examining police-community relations.

Congratulations to Carlos Javier Ortiz who is one of three recipients of the 2018 CatchLight Fellowship. In its second year, the CatchLight Fellowship continues to recognize photographers for their excellence in depicting visual stories of crucial issues — ideally motivating action for social change.

Carlos won for his project “Between the Lines” which looks at relations between the communities of Del Paso Heights and South Sacramento in California and the police. Learn more about his project and the fellowship in this article in the Washington Post.
