comprehend hunger through imagery

Mourning in Mogadishu

Photographer Jared Moossy traveled to Somalia this September, photographing a country ravaged by famine. He visited two refugee camps, near Bald Hawa and Dolo, and the capital, Mogadishu. What he saw — and what he photographed — was a country ravaged by decades of war, drought, and terrorism.

Above, women in Bald Hawa, gather to express their frustration and tell their stories — where they had traveled from, why they had left — while waiting for a food aid to be delivered. Several people in the group had walked for days to reach the refugee camp; many had lost family members along the way.  link
