so many beautiful faces, fantastic Peter
And such a beautiful comment from you. I’ve just perused your own gallery and see much beauty there of all types, but particularly of faces of very young people and of people somewhat older. Your photos of young children and the picture of you and your father dancing are priceless.
You bring so much joy with your camera to these people! I can see in their faces!
Thank you again, Teresa, especially as you respond to the joy in these children’s faces. Of course, joy mingles often with other emotions – pain, fear, yearning, loss – as you depict so strikingly in your own pictures. You are so good at showing how strong urges – of mind, soul, and flesh – can yield joy which is all the stronger for being all the more complex. As I saw in Uganda, the pain in these children’s lives has not yet, and we hope never will overwhelm their capacities for joy.
