A mass rape victim and her son in the town of Fizi. Her son suffered a head wound (pictured here) when soldiers threw him to the ground before raping and beating his mother. After posing for a portrait on her own, this woman insisted that I photograph her son. She seemed more concerned with his suffering than with her own.
