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.

    @adi_totp: no the focusing system on the Rolleiflex is not the same: there's a knob on the side that moves the whole front of the camera body to get the focus. It's an absolutely fantastic camera, if you have the occasion to buy one, do it, you'll never regret it!
