    Reportage Online

    In June 2012, Shannon Jensen was on the northern border of South Sudan as 30,000 people were fleeing the conflict in Blue Nile state. As a way of showing the plight of the refugees in a new way, she decided to focus on a telling detail - their shoes. Says Jensen: “The incredible array of worn-down, ill-fitting, and jerry-rigged shoes formed a silent testimony of the arduous nature of the trek, the persistence and ingenuity of their owners, and the diversity of these individuals thrown together by tragic circumstance”

    Jensen, a Reportage Featured Contributor, was awarded the 2014 Inge Morath Award in order to continue the project with subject interviews. See more images from ‘A Long Walk.’
