Pastoral Visions
Pastoralists document their lives through words and pictures
In April 2002, the CAPE Unit distributed disposable cameras topastoralists throughout the Karamojong Cluster an area whichincludes NW Kenya, NE Uganda, SE Sudan, and SW Ethiopia asking the photographers to capture what you see around you. In February 2003, CAPE revisited the photographers to find out more about their lives and the meanings behind theirphotographs. Each photographer was asked to describe what isimportant to them, what each photograph shows, why this isimportant, and what they would want someone to learn fromlooking at that photo.The result is a selection of photographs and personal historiesfrom pastoralists throughout the Karamojong Cluster. It is ourhope that these images and stories will provide a more accuratepicture of the issues facing pastoralists today.The CAPE Unit received technical support from the Feinstein International Center, Tufts University.
