Samenvatting

The Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA),

led by the infamous Joseph Kony, was

active in northern Uganda from the

second half of the 1980s. The rebel group

became notorious for the use of extreme

violence, in particular its large-scale

abductions of children. Rebel Lives is a

visual story about life inside the rebel

movement: based on photographs taken

by LRA commanders between 1994 and

2004, this book documents life within

violent circumstances, and depicts the

rebels as they wanted to be seen among

themselves and by the outside world.

Kristof Titeca, Associate Professor in

Development Studies at the University

of Antwerp and expert on the LRA,

collected this material, and used it to

trace the photographed (former) rebels.

Together with Congolese photographer

Georges Senga, he travelled back to

photograph the former rebels in their

current context.

With text contributions from Jonathan

Littell, Harriet Anena, Rein Deslé, and

Christine Oryema Lalobo.

Based on meticulous

follow-up photos, Rebel

Lives unveils a layer of

humanity that makes the

rebels’ own photos worth

understanding in the

first place. It is a most

important historical
