Photographer's Note

My stay in Guinea-Bissau in 1990 coincided with the yearly carnival. For a few days thousands of people gathered in the city center each afternoon to have fun, dressed in fantasy costumes and playing loud music. Contrary to the more famous carnival in Rio de Janeiro there were no samba schools, no half-naked women dancing in the streets, mainly kids enjoying a break from the rather harsh life of one of the poorest countries on earth.
In a workshop you can see another view from the same place. Both pictures were scanned from Kodachrome slides.
