Faces Never Forgotten offers an intimate glimpse into the lives of Somalis living in Somaliland, a nation shrouded in misconceptions and myths. These photographs present the humanity in each of these faces. The goal of this project is to provide people with the opportunity to see past the headlines and look into the faces of those living on the margins of society.
