Beautiful Face by rebecca zachariah

A face speaks a thousand words. This woman I met at a hospital in Congo. She was in the hospital for treatment away from her home, a hospital that was basic by our standard but better than she ever had lived in. You could see her sadness and yet you can see her hope. May be life after she is healed will be better for her. If only I could see her again to find out.

    Such depth to the face – I can almost feel her ‘thinking’ at me.

    I remember this woman at the hospital-she was an absolute stunner. Well captured Bec. My one of her wasn’t anywhere near as good as this.

    You know you have a real talent for capturing the essence of people…they just seem to “be” when you point your camera at them….this woman is so beautiful…I’m sending her loads of good vibes.

    I love the Congolese people. They are stunning, and this portrait is exceptional.
