Tragically, the forces that shaped the Holocaust - ethnic cleansing, mass genocide and enforced displacement of millions of people - continue to be enacted in conflicted territories around the world. 

Working for the United Nations Peacekeeping Operations, Nerris Markogiannis’ photography focusses on those affected by civil war in Sudan who have been forced to flee into one of several UN refugee camps in the country.     

Reflecting on the history of Holocaust photography, his images try to develop an alternative visual language for capturing difficult stories of violence and human suffering.
