Liz and I have just spent a truly inspiring day darting between three schools in the Himalayan mountains. We met some wonderful children from very poor backgrounds who are all learning English (we’re trying to ‘twin’ one class with a school in Newport via our friend, Jude, but more on that in another blog post). Just take a look at this cheeky little chappie from Class Six at Magna Vale School, Sukhia Pokri, Darjeeling. Just adorable!
Wandering the dusty market in Massawa, Eritrea, I turned a corner and bumped into this group of kids. Their parents all worked in the market and were more than happy to allow their kids to pose for me. Judging by these shots I don’t think I was the first to photograph them because they knew how to work the camera!
