Just walked in from spending time in a township here named ngombe with a project that helps support grandmothers. This one, Elizabeth, lives in a one room shack literally 2x2 metres and looks after many grandchildren, orphans of aids.
I can only feel guilt and sadness after seeing this photograph and reading its description that we do so little to help. What a subject and what a great shot, your description is heart-Wrenching but her face tells us even more, these caring women are amazing, thank you for submitting this photograph, Adrian
I am South African so I totally understand what you would have seen beyond the lens with this one. What a wonderful portrait telling an incredible story. You are a great photographer and you should consider doing good with your photos, especially ones like this which expose the world to the hardships of AIDS in Africa.
stunning portrait. love the slight dof, the detail, the colours and tones (amazing).
thanks for your comments everyone, sarah, this set is for a fundraising and awareness raising drive in the US. the same project i did this for also feed, clothe and school over 200 orphans. will post more from these in the next couple days.
The wisdom of her age shines in her eyes. You've captured an excellent expression. Nicely done!
That is a fantastic portrait, full of character detail. Thanks for providing her story as it provides a more complete backdrop.
Gareth, you're a star. I'd love to see everything you do and hear the progress you make. It's a wonderful cause and you have a good talent to be able to help these people. Good luck with your efforts and keep us posted.
Fantastic image, so much character and feeling in her eyes and skin. Great work
What a wonderful character portrait..Judith
