About The Work

Walking is a photograph from Jaar's series The Rwanda Project. This image was taken during his visit to Africa in the summer of 1994, soon after the months of genocide began. He captures a figure traveling down a dirt road, barefoot and cloaked in purple, carrying a plastic bag full of possessions and a walking stick. Jaar says, "I witnessed this scene in 1994 in Zaire, today called Congo. A refugee is walking. His appearance is similar to most refugees, with bare feet and a cane. He carries just one bag filled with old garments; he has lost everything. This man was just one out of four million Rwandan refugees seeking refuge outside Rwanda or being displaced within Rwanda. I was unable to assist this man in his desperate journey. I remember him walking."
