In Photos: “Becoming South Sudan” by Alinka Echeverria (2011).

It’s been a little over three years since the four million voters from Africa’s youngest country voted in a referendum to secede from Sudan and create the Republic of South Sudan. January 9th, 2011, was the day that changed everything, the day history was made and the day the world’s 193rd nation was birthed. Exactly six months later on July 9th, 2011, South Sudan officially became a sovereign and independent nation.

However, less than five years later the country has found itself in an ongoing conflict as fighting between government forces and rebel armies (chiefly the Sudan Peoples’ Liberation Movement - SPLM) continue to take place over resources and territory. Today, April 15th, marks exactly four months since the beginning of South Sudan’s current civil war. The war has so far displaced more than a million and killed over 10,000. UNICEF warns that the South Sudan conflict and famine could kill 50,000 children within months.

Woman Photographs Herself Receiving Strange Looks in Public

"I now reverse the gaze and record their reactions to me while I perform mundane tasks in public spaces. I seek out spaces that are visually interesting and geographically diverse. I try to place myself in compositions that contain feminine icons or advertisements. Otherwise, I position myself and the camera in a pool of people…and wait.

The images capture the gazer in a microsecond moment where they, for unknowable reasons, have a look on their face that questions my presence. Whether they are questioning my position in front of the lens or questioning my body size, the gazer appears to be visually troubled that I am in front of them.”
