We met a bunch of kids while visiting the Tiebelé dam. Caught by a tropical rain, we all sought refuge in a small hut and had a very interesting and unexpected conversation with those kids on the coming regional elections, the things needing to be improved or done in their village, and what they would personally do if they were elected. One of the key moments in our Burkinabe trip. When the rain stopped for a while we left, and got stuck again this time under the roof of the local school. The light was perfect and the wall and windows made for a great setting for a series of portraits.
This kid's name is Florent and he is 15.
