Photographer's Note

This girl is from a small village outside of Bukavu. Her village has been devastated by atrocities and the ongoing conflict. Her life has been determined by hardship and grief. Yet her captivating smile defies her upbringing, the joy and happiness in her soul are depicted in her striking eyes. All throughout the time we were with this young girl, the smile never once departed from her face. She is just one of the stories that contradict my ideas about the situation facing the Congolese people.
