Hagir Elsheikh – “As a torture survivor, the first thing that you lose is your voice, and getting that back requires a lot of courage.

  • By Jonathan Banks

“Portraits of Resilience” is a collaboration with the Torture Abolition and Survivors Support Coalition (TASSC) and is a series of portraits that are currently being exhibited at the Phillips Collection @TheARC in Washington DC. On the 27th of April the Phillips Collection organised a panel discussion about the photographs including myself as the artist and Hagir Elsheikh, who is on the TASSC International board and is a survivor of torture from Sudan.

Hagir Elsheikh – “As a torture survivor, the first thing that you lose is your voice, and getting that back requires a lot of courage. You are never really the same but you get to cope with help from organisations such as TASSC”.

Of course, if you would like to watch the whole film it is now available on YouTube at

Survivors are the strongest and most effective voice in the campaign to abolish torture.

When I talk to people about the work, their initial reaction is usually the same, as they imagine gritty black and white portraits that show harrowing faces that are worn and downtrodden.

I wanted to capture a series of beautiful and powerful portraits that each person would be proud of.
