Family portraits in a refugee camp makeshift studio

South African photojournalist Alexia Webster has documented the stories of refugees and displaced peoples throughout Africa.

After one man said he felt exploited, Alexia decided to turn her job on its head - by setting up makeshift studios on campsites and printing out images to give to her subjects.

Alexia talks about her first "Refugee Street Studio" project in the Bulengo Internally Displaced Persons camp outside Goma in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

It was financed by the Prince Claus Fund which supports artists' work in conflict zones.
