Photojournalist Sarah Fretwell's The Truth Told Project is the artistic sum of her latest trip to the Democratic Republic of Congo. Fretwell has expressed her appreciation of photography based upon its expressive merits, providing a voice to those who would otherwise go unheard.
The Truth Told Project is specifically geared towards the topic of rape. As the issue is prevalent in the region, she hopes to draw the public mind towards the aggrieved victims. The quotes that she has placed on top of her moving portraits speak volumes as they have come straight from the mouths of her subjects. Sentences that read "They have already accepted what has happened. They can't change it," and "My heart is tired" are certainly poignant.
