From My Modern Met: The Truth Told Project as photographed by Sarah Fretwell

by | Posted March 2nd, 2013

Photojournalist Sarah Fretwell has created a powerful photography project. She traveled into the Democratic Republic of Congo and captured photos and “statements from young girls and women who have suffered unimaginable sexual violence as innocent victims of war.”

Fretwell believes photography is a medium where we are given a glimpse and a small “insight” into “the lives of people who would otherwise never be heard.” Titled The Truth Told Project, Fretwell hopes it will “serve as a catalyst for change, offering survivors a chance at justice by enabling them to share their story with the world and making the human connection needed to garner the support of the international community.”
