Swedish-based Nora Lorek [b. 1992, Giessen, Germany] is a regular contributor to National Geographic. In addition to editorial assignments, she has spent the past four years photographing South Sudanese women who fled to Uganda, carrying their only possessions wrapped in embroidered sheets called milayas. Today, in Bidibidi, the second largest refugee camp in the world, traditional milayas, pillowcases, bedspreads, and wall hangings are being hand-embroidered by South Sudanese women as a means of income.
Proceeds donated to Milaya Project. Lorek is the co-founder of the Milaya Project, a non-profit that connects South Sudanese women in refugee camps with people who want to purchase their traditional art forms.
BriefCASE is a selection of limited editioned photographs available for purchase through CASE. 50% of the proceeds are donated to an organization chosen by the artist, 25% goes to the photographer, and 25% goes to CASE for production.
