In a sketch by Sara Hylton, a assured lady stands in form for a portrait. Wearing a patterned shirtdress and radiant coronet jewelry, she exudes style. What is not immediately apparent is that a design was shot in South Sudan, a young, war-torn nation where even carrying a camera in open is dangerous.
In this moment, though, a dispute is quiet; autocratic a support is Akuja de Garang’s self-possession, her consecutive spirit. What we see and what surrounds a theme are dual clearly paradoxical stories, lifting a doubt of how calm and context surprise any other.

The mainstay facilities a abounding viewpoint that examines style, temperament and culture.
In a photo essay by Ms. Hylton, character tells a incomparable story about honour in South Sudan. Self-expression acts as a approach to say a clarity of normalcy in a place where there is consistent conflict.
