Why They Immigrate: Portraits of the Congo

I often like to post pictures from the Big Picture.  The following are a sample of photos of a series taken in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. In what has been described as the deadliest conflict since World War II, roughly 5.4-million people have been killed since 1998.

My goal in these posts is to remind people “why they come”.
