Thanks for the pictures, I have been sitting here looking until got the picture of my own mother. Gongic is my blood cousin whom we have lived as children until the war set as apart. We first separated in 1998, met in 1990 and got separated again before we met again in Torit in December of 1990. We separated again untill 20 years later in 2011 in Nairobi. I live in Australia. Nice Pictures
In reply to David Chiengkou, robert said, Hi David, thank you so much for your comment! Your mother is a very friendly and beautiful lady and I think her portrait is one of the best I shot! How long is it that you haven’t seen her?
Its so tragic that many South Sudanese were displaced from their family, friends and loved ones. I hope you can see that Gongich really enjoyed reuniting with his friends, family and foremost mother even though it wasn’t always easy for him, especially in Juba. For me I’m very happy and honored that I got a chance to experience the hospitality and the kindness of the Dinka people, because staying in Juba I lost a bit of hope in the rebuilding of the country. I hope Gongich will be able to adapt again into South Sudan and that he will be able to reach his goals. And I’m glad to have helped you with the picture of your mother!
In reply to robert, David Chiengkou said, Robert, i saw my mother last year after many years. I have seen that you took some pictures at Gak centre where both our families use to stay. I and Gongic were born in Gak but during the war, our home became bushland. My mum and Gongic mother are distance cousin who hail from another clan 70km North of GAK. While my father and Gongic are cousins on our clan. we share the same great grandfather with Gongic “CHOL”. I will be happy if you can help me with the portrait of my mother
