Photographer's Note

In a rural village not far from Gondar in Northern Ethiopia, this boy belongs to the generation that will have to cope with the transition to globalization.

As in the photo background, the background of this generation is blurring, and its future is still unclear - like the notebook held by the boy.

Meanwhile, a good moment in the present: the boy was so proud and delighted he had been able to communicate with me that he brought his English lessons to show me.

ps - Contrary to the stereotype, the landscape in Ethiopia is quite green, certainly in the populated areas.

- scanned and sharpened (it could have been sharpened even more so as to get the notes in the notebook more readable, but I preferred to leave the notes like that, after all they are not so important, and in addition it'd be too much sharpening)

serenadanesi, Matiash, sathiyan, amstel, zeus, xuaxo, pranab, pierrefonds has marked this note useful
