Traveling to the far corners of Burundi to tell compelling picture stories, I am NITANGA TCHANDROU self-thought photojournalist, and VII Academy alumni, I reveal the human side of issues faced by people across Burundi. My images highlight those basic human elements that comprise the fabric binding all ethnicity together in our rapidly homogenizing, yet sometimes divided, global community.
Peering well beyond the surface of unfolding stories, my photographs reveal the heart, and sometimes, heart-wrenching truth. My images offer viewers intimate glimpses into the lives of ordinary people all over Burundi and provide an opportunity for us to reflect upon, and understand their personal struggles and triumphs.
With a keen awareness and reverence for human dignity, I create photographs that not only educate and motivate but also stir a viewer's deep emotion.
"My goal is always to create high-impact, evocative images which not only inform, but also spark the desire to become involved... images that cause reflection upon and empathy with another human being's struggle, all  the  while,   respecting  the   dignity   of  those  who appear in the photos. When successful, my imagery reveals a common humanity, allowing viewers to see a bit of themselves in other human beings, half a world away. Beyond just providing information... the images should motivate viewers to take action".
