There are more than 100 photo studios in Juba, the capital of South Sudan. People can choose their favourite fantasy photo backdrop to transport themselves to the land of their dreams. The young may choose a celebrity background, perhaps with Rihanna or 50 Cent, while the older generation often prefer a Western-style home. They say the photo image is a welcome respite in war-torn South Sudan.
