Photographer's Note

Jour de cérémonie dans la plantation.
On pose la première pierre du dispensaire.
Les jeunes danseuses sont prêtes.
Gracieuses comme des princesses qui viendraient d'être élues, elle n'ont pas encore l'habitude.
Elles cachent leur timidité.
Elles attendent la fin des discours.
Elles ajustent leurs bijoux.
Elle se retournent pour regarder l'étranger.
Elles le trouvent drôle.
Alors, oubliant le protocole et la danse, elles rient comme des enfants.

****

Day of ceremony in the plantation.
The first stone of the dispensary is posed.
The young dancers are ready.
Gracious as princesses who have been just elected, they do not have the practice yet.
They hide their timidity.
They await the end of the speeches.
They adjust their jewels.
They are turned over to look at the foreigner.
They find him funny.
Then, forgetting the protocol and the dance, they laugh like children.
