I took this in a very remote part of Nigeria. I was taking a brief rest from traveling the hard two day journey off road in a battered Toyota Landcruser. I saw this River Taxi from a distance and waiting until it was close enough to take the shot.
I have crossed the Nigar river many times and you really do Pray when in these leaky boats. Often there will be 10-12 people in a boat made for 5 people. Then theres the goats, chickens, N=motor bikes and anything else they can fit in. Its no big deal for the locals to get wet as water comes in over the sides. But for me who cannot swim, I sure Pray a lot.
My passion in life and inspiration come sfrom helping the extreme poor in Remote villages. They are often reject, forgotten by Government and Church. It is these suffering people that create my passion to help and for Photography
