The Truth Told Project
The Truth Told Project was born in December of 2010 when award-winning photographer Sarah Fretwell ventured into the war-torn mineral rich region of North Kivu in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). Her time there was spent in rural villages and bush country ravaged by the ongoing battle for access to minerals and land.
For fifty days, she gathered the untold stories of the people bearing the brunt of the conflict. The Project amplifies the voices of women, girls, and men of the DRC who have been silenced by the war, their government, and corruption.
The goal of the project is to illuminate the daily realities of life in the DR Congo, discuss the key players in the conflict, and the rampant sexual violence. It will discuss the immense prospect the land and people hold for the future, if only they can have the support of the international community.
Award-winning photographer Sarah Fretwell’s work focuses on the lives of citizens in current and post conflict countries.
Her goal is to share the truth and beauty of their personal stories with the rest of the world. She believes the stories offer survivors a chance at justice, insight for solutions, and the human connection necessary to engage the international community.
Her work has been featured by South by Southwest (SXSW) Interactive, TEDx SkidRow, TOMS shoes, Enough Project, Human Rights Watch, American Photo Magazine, American Photo On Campus, Photo District News, Treehugger.com, Palm Springs Photo Festival, and universities around the US.
