Fork in the road

A gentleman whose leg was forcibly amputated by a child soldier during the civil war in Sierra Leone takes his first steps with a new pair of crutches that were donated to him by The Peace Project.

I photographed him as he navigated the rush hour traffic in Sierra Leone’s capital city. 

Pademba Road

With your innate superiority you carve your God into a mountain. My God is carved on sand and will never know security.

If I eat well tonight you will not starve.

In June of this year I met a community of polio survivors who live on Pademba Road in Freetown, Sierra Leone. The majority of the men I interviewed are in urgent need of crutches and wheelchairs.

As you will see from this short video; for these polio survivors, the only way they can have mobility is to crawl along the ground.
