Barbed Wire (Dustin Barter)

For me this photo captures the paradox of IDP camps in Kachin, where they provide security for displaced people, yet relatively trapped inside, life is far from normal. Concurrently, I feel it represents IDPs’ resistance to the situation and desire to push back. It didn’t necessarily make me think differently about development, but reinforces that we all need to push back against boundaries.
