Photo Feature: Forgotten War: Democractic Republic of the Congo


Five world-renowned photographers from the VII Photo Agency - Ron Haviv, Gary Knight, Antonin Kratochvil, Joachim Ladefoged and James Nachtwey - travelled to the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) from May through August of 2005 with the international humanitarian organization Médecins Sans Frontières/ Doctors Without Borders (MSF) in order to shed light on the suffering of the Congolese people as they struggle to survive a war that remains virtually invisible to the outside world. Their work is presented in Democratic Republic of the Congo: Forgotten War, a photo exhibition and a new book published by de.MO. The exhibition had its launch in New York last September and has since toured the DRC, Japan, Switzerland, Denmark, Canada and Hong Kong.
