The clam-shell box is handmade, using organic materials. All text is hand-printed using a letterpress. The twelve portraits included are archival pigment prints on unique handmade paper. Each box has a different collection of images.
Copies of the Lost Boys and Girls' most guarded possession - their manifest, which is their documentation containing their family members' names and photos, identification numbers and ration card numbers - were used to make the handmade paper for this collection. The paper was toned with coffee harvested in Ethiopia, where they spent four years after their exodus in an attempt to flee genocide, and roasted in Kakuma, where they have lived for more than 25 years, as well as Kenyan dirt from the South Sudanese church where the portraits were made.
This collection is a numbered edition of ten.
All profits go directly to the children of the Lost Boys and Girls to help with their educational fees and to establish a library.
