Photographer #207: Pep Bonet

Pep Bonet, 1974, Spain, is a photojournalist who has won various awards throughout the years. He has covered many stories throughout Africa, amongst which are Somalia, Darfur, Angola and Ethiopia. His most known project is Faith in Chaos, an ongoing photo essay on the aftermath of the war in Sierra Leone. Pep also concentrated on HIV/Aids for long periods of time within Africa, but also in India and Honduras. In 2008 he released the book One Goal, a long term project on the Sierra Leone's amputees soccer team. During the civil war in Sierra Leone, amputation was used as a weapon of fear in order to get young men to stop fighting for an opposing side. The following images come from One Goal, Orphans Zwaziland and Somalia 04.
