About the Photograph:

“It had rained all day and when I was finally able to go out and photograph, the sole reason why I was in Sudan after all, I found all the streets flooded and all sudanese trying to go on with their lives the best they could. I had to move quickly like them so that no-one was too suspicious about what I was doing. It wouldn’t have been the first time that two guys in plain clothes stopped me and took me to their headquarters for interrogation.”
