This project documents South Sudan just before it became Africa’s newest nation in 2010. George spent three months in the region, covering traditional life of the various ethnic groups as well as the major oil fields on the northern border of Sudan. He was also able to document the effects of the inter-tribal warfare that is being carried out by militias armed by the Khartoum government. George arrived in the small village of Duk Padiet the day after some 167 people were killed, and photographed South Sudanese soldiers burying their comrades in hastily-dug shallow graves.
