The Children of Africa

In some parts of Africa I saw children working at a young age. Selling cigarettes, baby sitting and so on. The children on this page are from Malawi. It seemed to me that these children were more innocent , more child, compared to other parts of Africa.

It took me two hours to make these pictures. Every time I took my camera, everybody did hide themselves. Or they just ran away and curiosity made them to come back after a few minutes. First I showed my camera to all the children. Let them take a look through it, to their friends. After playing a while with the camera and the whole bunch of children, they were used to this strange thing and was it possible to take a few pictures.

Frozen, coloured water in a small plastic sack is a favourite item.
