The Land of upright People

The Land of upright People

That's the meaning of the name "Burkina Faso". And all the people I met there were really proud to be burkinabe. And in front of the camera, they didn't play anything, but expressed soemthing very strong and upright, especially the kids. I'd like to thank all these people for their kindness, hospitality and for the portraits I could shoot of them.

    @avola: yes I was stunned when I saw her attitude, and she wasn't posing for the picture, but lost in her thoughts for a few seconds, just enough for me to capture it!
    @buckshot thanks a lot for these words :)

    thank you so much for this album. When I got a glimpse of it yesterday, it made me so happy and reminded me of this http://www.lomograph(…)otos/100539 that I loved so much from you and I think to this day is one of the best I have seen here.
    Thank you for these portraits! The emotions, expressions, love, happiness, strength...you captured it well in these faces. Beautiful!

    thanks @grazie! and you're right, I found during my stay the same strong emotions as 5 years ago and was thinking at this very same picture I took then with Holga when I was taking pictures of these kids now...
