Intended Consequences

Tuesday, March 03, 2009

During the 1994 Rwandan genocide, hundreds of thousands women were subjected to massive sexual violence by members of the infamous Hutu militia groups, known as the Interhamwe. Among the most isolated survivors are women who have borne children as a result of those rapes. Photographer Jonathan Torgovnik's new exhibition "Intended Consequences: Rwandan Children Born of Rape" is on view at the Aperture Gallery through May 7th. You can view a slideshow of Torgovnik’s work here.
