For this week’s Photo Friday, I’m happy to include this photo entitled “It’s In The Eyes”. This photograph was a Nominee at the 6th Annual Photography Masters Cup in the category entitled Children of the World.

The backstory: This photo was taken on Benguerra Island, off the coast of Mozambique. The children in the village are collectively taken care of by the women in the tribe, as the men usually have many wives. The girl in the photos with the beautiful eyes was very shy at first, but after I spent some time with her family, she opened up. One of her sister’s is an albino, and this tribe has only just recently accepted albinos into society. Before that, they were considered a bad omen, or “devil child” and were basically left to die. I love this picture because of the way the light light captures the eyes of these children, and shows that their curiosity of me is equal to my curiosity of them.

I’m thrilled to have one of my images nominated by the Photography Masters Cup for the third consecutive year. It is an honor to be recognized by such an esteemed jury and to be included amongst some of the finest photographers in the world. Thank you!
