Faces of Malawi

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.

Faces of Bolivia

PURE air, BEAUTIFUL scenery, INSPIRING people, just a few of the adjectives I used to describe my experiences in Bolivia. My faces of posts aren’t about words but simple images which speak of the people I meet on assignment. I hope you enjoy them.

Faces of Haiti

This ‘Faces of‘ post features some images from my recent Haiti assignment.  I was asked by Outreach International to accompany an assessment team of specialists from the organisation to acquire images which reflected the situation on the ground as we found it.  As usual, I spent quite a lot of time talking to people about their circumstances and how they are dealing with the recent disaster.  To be honest it was hard to hear their stories and to witness the chaos surrounding them right now.  Haiti isn’t on the media radar any more, the reporters have  moved on to other stories but the problem hasn’t gone away for hundreds of thousands of Haitians who are trying to rebuild their lives.

Something I find incredible about all the places I’ve visited so far is that you will often find smiles on faces even amidst such poverty. A couple of the shots I’ve posted below convey some of the sadness which individuals are experiencing but the majority show the hope which still abounds even in such dire situations.  Many of the people I met in Haiti had a courage and resolve I could only dream of and I can only hope that my images will motivate others to respond with a similar resolve to address their needs.
