Title: “Princess of São Tomé and Príncipe”
Description of the work: During one of my trips around São Tomé and Príncipe, visiting the community of Roça Saudade, the presence of children was a constant. There was contagious joy and a certain amount of age-related embarrassment, but they were always around to play.
This little boy, one of the shyest in the group, stood a little isolated, apart while his friends chatted and played with us.
When I noticed him, dressed in that yellow T-shirt and leaning against the yellow license plate of an old abandoned van, I couldn’t resist taking the photo.
I went up to him afterwards to show him the picture, and he was delighted and came over to join the rest of us. Photography helps to bring the world closer together!
