Many people know Rwanda through photographs taken by foreign photojournalists during the 1994 genocide and its aftermath, but how do Rwandan photographers see their country today?

Last year, King’s College London hosted a workshop in the Rwandan capital Kigali, bringing together 11 Rwandan photographers to capture their homeland.

Zoe Norridge, from King’s College London, and Nigerian photographer Andrew Esiebo talk to Thomson Reuters Foundation about their experience working with the photographers.

The photographers’ images feature in an exhibition “Rwanda in Photographs: Death Then, Life Now” presented by the Cultural Institute at King’s at the Inigo Rooms, Somerset House East Wing in London until April 30.
