“When I looked at these photographs, they spoke to me. Many of the victims in these photos knew they were going to die. They had their mouths open in pain, and you could sense the humiliation they had suffered. Each time I looked at these faces, I could not erase them from my memory. Every day I heard the cries of victims expressing their suffering, telling us what goes on inside the prisons and detention centres. There was no one there to bear witness, no one replied. These victims have placed on my shoulders the responsibility to bear witness to their families, humanity as whole and the free world of the tortures inflicted upon them.”
