Taken in Tado. The boy loved posing for the camera and playing in the dirt. He, like many of the younger children, had no underwear on pants on him. I did not want to risk exploiting the idea that many of the children are partially naked, so I only shot him waist up. It made sense to me why the younger kids often did not wear "full" clothing. If I had a young child without the luxury of diapers and toilet paper and toilets for that matter, I'd have them play without "bottom" clothing too.

Thanks for your comment on my photos. You obviously have a talent to capture a child.
Both of your photo posted here are fine and strong.
If I my suggest, I think that this photo need some changes to get more strength and to became even more impressive.
If this is mine photo I would either crop sandals completely out of photo or include whole feet in sandals. SEcond options would result in much stronger message of how could child sometimes be cruel to each other, while crop without sandal will give more focus to kods fear that is obvious on his face.

I really like your photo and composition but I think you should crop the photo a little bit from below.

A very nice shot Adrienne. The colors are great. Like you said, it is not necessary to take him naked. This is perfectly fine. Well done. Sothy

Firstly thanks for your comment on my photo. I simply love the way you put your notes in describing the nature of this place. I believe most of this children are suffering from poverty that means no education, no proper clothing and no medical attention.
Please allow me to add this picture to my theme "Children Of Poverty" to help create an awareness to other members or people around the world on the suffering of this innocent soul.

Muito bem feita a foto.
Um olhar realmente ao centro do que é atenção, mesmo com uma expressão primeira de quem está abandonado... ví um aspecto dispojado de qualquer vaidade.
