Good Rain

 

Rwanda was colonized by my country from 1916 to 1962.

During that period a gigantic ethnic divide was created, resulting in several slaughterings, even over 20 years after independence.

 

I took a romantic look at a country that is buried under its tough history, but is suddenly shrouded with rain into a fairytale misty haze.

 

In Rwanda when it rains when you're having guests over, it means they're blessed. 

Even when they come from Belgium.

 

The images were made on trips between Kigali and Butare, just before, after or during rainfall.
