Photographer's Note

I love the way this small girl looks attentively at her grandmother’s face as they walk together after visiting the shop to buy milk. Ask most grandparents and they will tell you how much the relationship with their grandchildren means to them.
In Namibia, it is a common sight to see children in the care of their grandparents were they often remain until they reach school age. They then leave the rural areas (or ‘village’) and return to their parents who live in the urban areas where there is work

I have added a WS shot which you may find interesting. It also explains why the Grandmother's face is hidden!
