The death toll from the conflict in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) is the highest ever attributed to war in Africa or indeed, anywhere in the world since World War II. At least 3 to 4.7 million deaths have occurred in the past five years. And aid agencies say that war-related hunger and disease continues to kill 1,000 people every day. From May to August 2005, VII photographers visited the DRC with the full support of Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF). Ron Haviv, Gary Knight, Antonin Kratochvil, Joachim Ladefoged and James Nachtwey photographed the devastating impact on human life after decades of war, genocide, disease and hunger.
Number of Photographs: 49 (b/w and color)
