I’m still in the process of editing photos from my recent trip to Malawi but I’ve had numerous requests to post a few images, so here’s a selection of portraits which I’m posting under the ‘Faces of’ section . Malawi prides itself on being the warm heart of Africa and I can certainly confirm this claim, from the beginning of my trip to the very end I was made extremely welcome in the communities. I was humbled by the willingness of people to share their stories and food with me and I’ve made a lot of new friends. The extent of the poverty in Malawi was sobering and I think some of the shots below show that, especially as you look into the eyes of some of the children. However, there was a real sense of pride in the achievements these communities have made as they strive towards a better future.
