Field retrospective: photos from northern Uganda

I’ve belatedly uploaded some photos from my recent field trip to northern Uganda. You can see that the displacement camps are beginning to empty out. Everything of value–even doors–are being stripped. Huts are generally kept in case a failure of the peace talks necessitate return.

My colleague Khris Carlson (always the superior photographer) captures young boys standing atop a rock.

I love this sight: babies strapped to their mothers’ backs, protected from the son by half a gourd.


Women selling millet beer, the local brew. Brewing is the most common occupation among women in the camps.


Women beating sorghum to release the grains.

This is what passes for public transport.
