After over 25 years at war, Sudan and Southern Sudan managed to find a peace agreement and South Sudan seceded from the North in July 2011. Nevertheless, the bordering regions of Sudan remain unstable. South Kordofan is one of them. On July 5 2011 and after contested elections giving power to Ahmed Haroun, former commissioner of Darfur and wanted by the International Court of Justice, the war between the Sudanese government (SAF) and the rebels (SPLA-N) started again. Since that date, bombings, landmines and on-the-ground battles have become the daily life of the Nubian. Those random bombings made by the SAF have forced the locals to find refugee in the mountains, or fled to Yida refugee camp in South Sudan. Terrorized by the bombings and landmines, the population cannot grow food anymore which will eventually lead to wide spread famine. The Sudanese government has prevented NGOs and journalists to enter the region. With neither food nor sanitary aid and no media coverage allowed, despite the daily sound of the bombings, this war carries on in a major silence.
Photojournalist based in South Sudan, Camille moved to Juba with the idea in mind of shedding some light on this country too often forgotten. After the obtention of her Bachelor, she went off to explore the daily life of the South Sudanese. She documents the building of a nation recurrently seemed as doomed as well as the obstacles they have to overcome to become a nation.
Internships and reportage have proved to Camile that photography is the best way to enlight dark realities that often remain in the shade. "A strong picture stays in the unconscious, we can reach the sensitivity of anyone, no matter what their language, nationality or age are."
Freelance for Agence France Press since her arrival in South Sudan, Camille brings a new visibility on this new country.
