Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

This book is addictive. Read it. (At your own risk.)
I spent the summer of 1985 traveling throughout Darfur visiting refugee camps, towns and the countryside. It had not rained for years and finally the skies opened up and it poured, isolating camps, villages and cutting roads and bridges. This book is a photo documentation of that time, both the suffering and beauty of the people and place.
