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.
