South Sudanese Models Tell A Powerful Story In Mike Mellia's Newest Photo Exhibition

    andnbsp;|andnbsp;byandnbsp;andnbsp;Julee Wilson

    At first glanceandnbsp;Mike Mellia's portraits of top models Nykhor Paul,andnbsp;Ajak Deng, Ataui Deng and Eligha Ojoko are stunning portraits of the African beauties that could easily run in any fashion magazine. However, a closer look reveals something more than skin deep.

    Mellia's "Our Side of the Story: South Sudan" photo exhibition, in collaboration with Paul'sandnbsp;We Are Nilotic initiative, is not simply a collection of 14 moody images featuring South Sudanese supermodels, actors, musicians and humanitarians -- it's primarily a vehicle to bring attention to the fact that these individuals are also former child soldiers and refugees and that theandnbsp;violence in their country is far from over.

    “We created this work as art rather than journalism because we would like to raise awareness of South Sudan as a cultural movement,"andnbsp;Mellia told Artinfo.com.

    The exhibition will open to the public tonight (April 10) in New York City at the Tapir Editions Gallery at 39 White Street in Tribeca.

    "My goal is to capture emotion and tell the story in an honest way, but more importantly, to show the individuality of each subject,” Mellia said. “I am an artist. I claim no authority on the topic except to tell the story and show the emotions of those involved. But I am hoping that as many people as possible see the images, are moved emotionally, and so, share them with as many others as they can.”

    Check out a few of the powerful photographs below and head over to Mellia'sandnbsp;websiteandnbsp;to see the rest.
