There is something about the energy and spontaneity of kids that makes them magic to photograph. Big eyes, big smiles and bounds of potential. Many of these kids will have seen and been through things I can’t even start to imagine, yet they keep smiling, keep moving forward. For me that’s pretty inspirational and incredible.
Life in the DRC, particularly in the warn torn Kivu region where most of these photos are taken, is heart wrenchingly difficult. If you would like to make a difference, I can whole heartedly suggest
who do excellent work in the Kivus, training and educating women who impact the whole community.
