    Posted by Brian Jones

    30 August 2004 – camp (42k image)

    The camps are situated in and around Kitgum town in N Uganda. They are full of the Acholi people who have been displaced from their lands by the Lord's Resistance Army, which has led a reign of terror over the last 18 years or so. It's difficult to imagine just how many small huts are crammed together in the camps. The picture above shows some of the largest gaps between huts that I saw.
