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.
