About the book
In 1997, 1998 and 2000, I traveled to the Nuba Mountains to document the armed struggle of the Nuba in the SPLA against the Government of Sudan. After a peace agreement was reached in 2005, I returned to make a book about people's experience of the war and their expectations of the future. Some are soldiers, others are polticiians and civilians.
This is the first time many people talk about their part in the struggle with such candor. Their stories and portraits are complemented by a brief history that ranges from the origin of the Nuba to the latest developments at the time of writing.
Apart from the portraits and my own photos, the book has beautiful images by Yasuhiro Kunimori, Jack Picone, David Stewart-Smith and Antonio Cores. It also includes historical material from the Sudan Archive of the Durham University Library. Jan Pronk, the former UN special envoy of Kofi Annan to Sudan, wrote the preface.
