Fractured Lives Exhibition

Exhibition by Photojournalist Carol Allen Storey

Fractured Lives is a photographic and multimedia project illustrating the struggles faced by Rwandan citizens rebuilding their lives after the 1994 genocide. The exhibition is at the SW1 Gallery, Cardinal Place (Roof Garden) off Victoria Street in London, and runs until October 12th (check opening times of the gallery before making a trip).

After the private view, a colleague takes in the impact of the imagery.

The project was shot by Carol Allen Storey for International Alert and documents the lives of survivors, ex-combatants and ex-prisoners as they build their communities and reconcile.

I’m proud to say that I have been involved in all the image processing for the project, as well as creating a multimedia piece using these powerful photographs, stories told by the subjects, local music and a voice over. You can view this film below.

It’s an exhibition I highly recommend, so don’t miss it.

  1. Edmond – I love you!!! – what a star you are … so many stunning talents …Cx

  2. Truly inspiring. It’s so important that these extraordinary peoples stories are immortalised. It would be a tragedy to forget what happened in Rwanda in 1994. The only way to work for the future is to learn from the mistakes of the past.

  3. Thank you Nick for your very kind words – building a platform for lasting peace is a slow process … commencing with diminishing the historic prejucies passed on from one generation to another fueled by propaganda, jealousies, poor goverance and economics. Carol Allen Storey
