"Making Portraits Makes Friends"
I just posted a little inside look on my thoughts about making portraits and working in small towns on the blog (link in bio). 🙌🏼 @hollydazze @trinevay37 @johnmarkmcg @lauren.cantrell
“Music has been a really good tool for my survival”
Ajak Kwai lost many relatives when the militia came to her village in South Sudan and killed everyone, including three brothers and two nephews. She says “I can’t even count how many other relatives I lost, it’s so many.” In a move that saved her life, Ajak had already fled to the city and migrated to Australia as a refugee in 1998.
Since then she has become an established musician and is an icon of Australian Sudanese music. Her music is about peace, unity and forgiveness, she says “We have so much in common than differences really, and we forget that”. Photography by Marcus Thomson
