‘Shadowed’- A photographic story about Rape

Rape is a problem consuming our societies worldwide.I worked with four Ugandan contemporary dancers (Robert Ssempijja, Zawedde Sarah, Daphne Tumwebaze and Ssenyonga Oscar) to create images that tell stories about rape using dance as a medium of communication. In this series of pictures, one of the dancers – Daphne tells a story about a young woman who was raped, The physical and emotional pain involved, the trauma and how with the support and comfort from friends and family she manages to rebuild her life and choose to help and inspire other women who have gone through tough times. This is a story of hope and strength.
