children of the philippines: smiles, strength and poverty

Artist's Description

Lake Taal, Philippines

this little girl was deaf and mute

the people in the village told me she was an orphan and her parents had been killed, which was followed by a very clear “cutting of the neck” gesture by her

I bought her a pancake, sat in silence, while she giggled and ate it

I wish I knew more sign language

-Canon EOS Rebel XT, Tokina 11-16mm

all proceeds from this photograph will be donated to IFRC to help the victims of flooding from Typhoon Ketsana in the Philippines
