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.

understanding in the
first place. It is a most
