In Kony's Shadow exhibition

The London exhibition at Oxo Tower Wharf is now closed. More than 2,500 people visited the exhibition to explore and share stories from survivors of Joseph Kony’s Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) in northern Uganda.

You can still visit our online exhibition of photographs, films and personal accounts.

Hear how Norman, a former child soldier who was abducted at the age of 12, struggled to hold on to his humanity during the two years he served with the rebels.

Find out how his parents coped with the return of their son - now a trained killer, and read personal testimonies from those who were terrorised by this small but brutal army.

Visit our interactive webpage.

Photography by Will Storr. Films by Tom Pietrasik.
