Paul Rusesabagina, 2014.

One of my greatest privileges was to photograph one of my heroes- human rights activist, Paul Rusesabagina. The 2004 film Hotel Rwanda documents how Paul heroically saved the lives of over 1,200 Rwandan people during the Rwandan genocide of 1994. A self-proclaimed ordinary man, Paul exemplifies the principle of ‘lifting where you stand’ and doing what you can in your circumstances to build your community and help those in need.
