In Jan/Feb 2009 photographer Kate Geraghty and journalist Jonathan Pearlman travelled to the Democratic Republic of Congo to document the wide spread use of rape as a weapon of war and the impact of war on a civilian population who have been living in refugee camps for 15 years. The resulting story became a 2009 Walkley finalist documentary which can be viewed on www.smh.com.au/sexualwarfare.
The hauntingly powerful images in DISPLACED FUTURES are a narrative for the victims of these crimes. Kate Geraghty’s extraordinary series of photographs raise awareness of the circumstances under which the displaced Congolese people continue to live.
Kate Geraghty and King Street Gallery on William will contribute a percentage of sales from the exhibition to Médecins Sans Frontières. Their ongoing efforts both in DRC and many other countries around the world provide essential service and support to millions of people who would otherwise be left without life saving medical assistance.
