Twenty years after the genocide comes this diverse and accomplished collection of photographs of a nation on the up. The first international exhibition by Rwandan photographers, this group show documents the realities of life for everyday Rwandans. 

The exhibition is the result of a workshop run by two international photographers, the aim of which was to help Rwandans consider how they wanted to be perceived. Too often, the country has been viewed through the prism of the atrocities. While many scars have yet to heal, and there is still poverty and inequality, the pervasive mood of these images is dignity, cooperation and opportunity.
