Jonna Both studies the physical legacies of the Idi Amin period in the Yumbe District of north-western Uganda. Many men from this region fought alongside Amin and its population was later collectively punished for this involvement. She focuses specifically on the ruins left by the conflict and the narratives surrounding them. These are as an important reference point for the younger generation, who grew up around them and sometimes pose proudly for photographs in front of these dilapidated buildings. Both investigates how these young people relate to the history of the region and what role conflict legacies play in their lives.
