Our Side of the Story: South Sudan

Our Side of the Story: South Sudan – An Exhibition by Mike Mellia.

Photographer Mike Mellia teamed up with supermodel Nykhor Paul and some other people from South Sudan. Mellia has produced a portrait series of different people from South Sudan who have managed to escape. The photo series portraits these people and tells their personal story.

The portraits are currently exhibited at 39 White Street in Tribeca, New York City. The exhibition consists of 14 portraits of South Sudanese who escaped the conflict, now in America working as supermodels (Louis Vuitton, Lanvin, etc), actors (2 co-stars of Reese Witherspoon’s upcoming movie), and humanitarians. This project was achieved in collaboration with supermodel Nykhor Paul, working to end the circle of violence and exile.
