Travis spent the month of August 2010 in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). During this time he was able to visit the capital city Kinshasa and its sprawling neighborhoods, as well as the remote villages of South Kivu. He focused on documenting the International Rescue Committee's work in healthcare and community-driven reconstruction, but some of his images also capture the more quotidian moments of life in DRC. In a recent blog entry
Travis describes some of his impressions from the trip.
