Diamonds seekers on the Membere river by the village of Nola. Most of the youth in Nola have dropped out school hoping to find diamonds in the river as early as 10 yo. Although many do not even find one in years, they survive by doing field work or have small jobs on the side. The diamond business is one of the key issues in the conflict as each rebel / militia groups is trying to get their hands on the mining areas. #diamonds #centralafricanrepublic #carcrisis #africa #photojournalism #documentary #latergram

It’s really weird to see this on Tumblr radar today. This was Camille’s blog and for those who do not know, she was killed while on assignment in Central African Republic on May. She was only 26. It’s been already more than a month and now seeing this just like that, all of a sudden, is kind of eerie and sad and strange and in fact, I don’t know, hard to explain.

Remembering the work of photojournalist Camille Lepage, killed in C.A.R.

"I want the viewers to feel what the people are going through. I’d like them to empathize with them as human beings, rather than seeing them as another bunch of Africans suffering from war somewhere in this dark continent. I wish they think: ‘Why on Earth are those people in living hell; why don’t we know about it and why is no one doing anything?’ I would like the viewers to be ashamed of their government for knowing about it without doing anything to make it end.” — Camille Lepage

The stunning, mature work of photojournalist Camille Lepage, who was killed in the Central African Republic

French photojournalist Camille Lepage has been found dead in the Central African Republic, President Francois Hollande’s office said in a statement Tuesday.

Too hard to believe this. I’m deeply saddened, still can’t believe it. She was not only a talented and dedicated photojournalist, but also she was a wonderful person, very kind, lovely and friendly. And way too young to die. Such a loss. RIP, Camille.

Today in Bangui : People injured by gun shots after the Chadian army came into town to take the displaced Chadian back to their country. 
The Misca (African Union army) and Anti Balaka firing at each other with tear gas, gun and grenades at Combattant district. 
And finally, a market scene late afternoon still in Combattant, almost like none of the above happened, although tension was definitely palpable.

Jada Djoma (35) mother of 7, lived in Dandur, government controlled area. She escaped after fighting erupted between SPLA-N and SAF. 
In Dandur, she was raped 4 times by the SAF soldiers. 
'It happens to girls, SAF soldiers'd tell them not to tell anyone or they would kill her.'
Her sister was taken to prison and tortured. She was then sent to Kurkul, and she hasn’t heard from her since.
She is missing three of her children, who were with her in Dandur, they ran away in the bush during the fighting, she doesn’t know where they went. © Camille Lepage - All rights reserved 2013intamunu.tumblr.com

In Yuai, #SouthSudan, the youth from the Lou Nuer tribe are on their way back from cattle raiding in Pibor County. After weeks in the bush, they spend a few days in the village to celebrate their coming back.
