Transit, By Espen Rasmussen
Sunday 29 May 2011
The Norwegian photographer Espen Rasmussen has spent the past seven years documenting refugees and displaced people in different parts of the globe, from Congo to Colombia.
His book opens with a series of pictures accompanied by diary notes which share his insights into the lives of refugees. Then, in more depth, he looks at each country in turn, showcasing his storytelling abilities.
His atmospheric images take us from a portrait of a Sudanese refugee in Darfur to a carnival in Bogota in which both local children and Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) participate.
This image shows IDPs seeking refuge in a church in the village of Rubare in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
