thanks ric for this interview, some nuggets in there 👍 #repost @visualrevolutionary https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/visual-revolutionary/id1013284622?mt=2&i=1000396483817 Photographer and Documentarian @michaelchristopherbrown joins us on the show today for a heartfelt conversation about what it means to truly be present to humanity, and if we are able to do that at the same time as looking through a viewfinder.  Link in bio. Many of you might know Michael from his most recent book "Libyan Sugar" and his amazing ability to capture the wide range of human emotions in conflict zones from Bengazi to the Congo.  During this conversation, I get the chance to explore those topics with Michael and talk about facing your own traumatic experiences after returning home from a conflict zone, finding true meaning and happiness within the chaos, and the advice he gives to others who want to travel the world and document the human existence.  So join us as we explore some of what it means to be a person and a photographer. - - @michaelchristopherbrown #podcast #podcasts #podcasting #podcasters #photography #photographer #photoshoot #photographylovers #photographyislife #filmmaking #director #postproduction #filmschool #artschool #travelphotography #documentaryphotography #documentarian #humanitarian #warphotography #conflictphotography #phototips #photographyschool #filmphotography #photographyadvice
I photographed Rebecca Masika Katsuva several times between 2012-2016 and was amazed by her resiliency, bravery and compassion. As an activist and a survivor of sexual assault, she continually sacrificed her safety to help other victims over the years. During the Second Congo War in 1999, attackers killed Masika’s husband and sexually assaulted her and her daughters, then 13 and 14. When they became pregnant as a result of the assaults, Masika and her daughters were forced to leave home after being disowned by her husband's relatives. That same year, Masika founded a ‘listening house’ at her home, located in the isolated village of Minova. A shelter for women to recover from violent acts, it provided medical help and consisted of several dozen houses for women to live in. In January 2009, former rebels, then newly integrated into the Congolese military, raped Katsuva for the fourth time. The former rebels said they attacked Katsuva because she accused them of assaulting women. Masika adopted 18 children over the years, all born of mothers who were sexually assaulted. In the decade before her death, in February 2016, she helped over 6,000 rape survivors.
