Heather McClintock’s work in Uganda is a collaboration of trust and discovery, and it’s from the vantage point of children. Arriving towards the end of the country’s brutal civil war, McClintock created a series of portraits of survivors. During subsequent trips, she documented the slow progress towards reconciliation and reconstruction of the fractured country, the results of which were collected in a book called The Innocent. Her work from Uganda has earned several awards, been exhibited both nationally and internationally and is included in the collections of the Santa Barbara Museum of Art and the United Nations.
