In 1994, internationally known author and photographer Lucian Niemeyer began a series of journeys to Africa to document and expose atrocities being committed there. Niemeyer travelled to the Rwandan refugee camps in Zaire a few months after the terrible Hutu-on-Tutsi genocide. Subsequent trips to the Sudan were made to document slavery, the oil field genocide, and the Nuba Mountain epoch. Four main types of holocausts are presented in these stories: tribe-on-tribe genocide (Rwandan Refugees), slavery (""The Sudan Slave Story""), religious Jihad genocide (Sudan Oil Field Genocide), and ethnic cleansing (Nuba Mountains, Sudan). Over 180 colour photos document these atrocities.
Lucian Niemeyer is a professional photographer who operates out of Santa Fe. He has traveled the world, photographing human and environmental conditions. He is author and photographer of numerous books including Chesapeake Country, Okefenokee, and Old Order Amish.
