Whose story is it ?


This is my last work from Africa. These children were working with us in mine awareness campaigns – singing and acting in order to help other children better understand how to avoid mine accidents. One afternoon a asked to take their pictures and it was an intuition that made my ask them to close their eyes. It took me about 20 minutes to take these pictures, plus three years of working in Africa before that. In Ryerson, many years after I took these pictures we reשd Linda Alcoff’s The Problem of Speaking for Others ;
I strongly recommend it http://www.alcoff.com/content/speaothers.html .
