Shannon Jensen: Long Walk

How do you represent a journey in an image?

30,000 men, women and children from Sudan’s Blue Nile State sought an end to nine months of terror and trauma when they crossed the border into their neighboring South Sudan this past June. They joined a population of 70,000 refugees who preceded them in fleeing Khartourn’s deadly military campaign to crush the northern remnant of the Southern liberation movement.

Many of the new arrivals had neer left the vicinity of their villages before shelling, bombardment and gun toting soldiers drove them away starting last September. They fled from the bush to the mountains and back again for months, often stuck behind enemy lines, before they were finally able to reach the border, a journey made more perilous by the dearth of water and food as well as the risk of ambush and attack. 

The incredible array of worn down, ill-fitting, and jerry rigged shoes form a silent testimony to the arduous nature of their journey, as well as the persistence and ingenuity of the individuals who survived it.
