Your wounds will be named silence

Zimbabweans living on the front lines of a dictators brutal campaign to hold on to power

Zimbabwe has become a forgotten land.

Today, with no light cast on the dark shadows of President Robert Mugabe’s relentless tyranny, the downtrodden people of one of Africa’s most hauntingly beautiful nations feel rightfully abandoned by the world.

Their modest hope devoured by the malice and greed of politicians, Zimbabwe’s people have nowhere to turn and, against the brutality of the police and military, no strength to cry out in the dark.

Your Wounds Will Be Named Silence tells the story of a lost generation of African’s, living in fear and dying of disease, poverty and neglect. 

A photo essay funded by the Carmignac Foundation Photojournalism Award.
