Artist's Description

Children from Hosanna – Ethiopia 1992
- my early work -

This photo of this boy and his donkey is one of a series photographs that is somehow precious to me.
I made them long ago, 1992, when we travelled to Ethiopia for a meeting. It was only a few years after the war, the poverty was appalling… And these kids… they just allowed me photographing them, with a spontaneity that touched my heart.
Even now, so many years later, I still bow for them, in reverence.

Yes, indeed, it was an incredible experience… one never too forget. And that’s exactly what makes these pics so precious…: the images help me to remember, more lively than my memory ever could…
