  1. There’s no doubt – you really know how to engage with your subject! Great portraits.

    1. Thank you, that is very generous. There is a real element of being in the right place at the right time to most of them, but people in Ethiopia were very happy to pose for photos.

  2. Thank you, love the portraits. Especially the girl with the exploding hair.

    1. Thanks. Her hair really is wonderful, but the joy in her face is what I love about the image.

  3. Beautiful portraits – I love the first man with the book. MM 🍀

    1. I was in the right place at the right time for that photo, the light was just right.

      1. You still had to see it….MM
