Hasan Chata, who is unsure of his age but imagines himself to be between sixty and seventy years old, poses for a portrait in Jamam refugee camp in Maban County, South Sudan on August 7th, 2012.  Fighting forced Hasan and his family to flee their home in Maganza Village, in Sudan's Blue Nile State, four months before this photograph was taken...The most important object that Hasan was able to bring with him is the empty wallet he holds.  Though he is now destitute, he left Maganza with enough money to buy food for his family during their 25-day journey from Maganza to the South Sudanese border...Note: Pictured refugees hold the most important single item which they carried with them from Blue Nile.  The photographer's intent is to follow up and complete a matching series in several months to see what the most important item in their new lives is.
