Photo blog: Rwanda in Photographs: Death Then, Life Now

As the world reflects on the lessons learned from the Rwanda genocide which took place 20 years ago, a photo exhibition at King’s College London is choosing to look forward, not backwards.

Too often the country is reduced to images of violence and death, as seen through the eyes of outsiders. For this exhibition, Rwandans have challenged this gaze and now show us their country through their own eyes.
