Photographer's Note

Perhaps it is not the best point of view, flash has deprived the face of volume and vitality, framing cut a part of a head of the boy. But my main focus was on his eyes. He is the boy from Yoruba tribe of the western Africa. It is necessary to notice on his cheeks tribal marks. In Nigeria children are brought up by a principle of the expanded family, and it means difficultly enough to know who parents of this boy. Already since the earliest childhood it will give to that family which will correspond more to its talents hidden from a birth and opportunities. It allows Yoruba people to develop and improve the most ancient knowledge which they have received about the ancestors many centuries back. And still I would like to add, that I have been very amazed by a degree of spiritual development of many African children at the earliest age. So such here a sight from far Africa.
