Selvin and Leti by BenoitPaille Selvin and Leti by BenoitPaille
VIEWS ALL THE SERIE (14 pic + making-off) HERE

Selvin 11 years and Leti 10 years
Q1: They have known for 10 days now
Q2:They find each other fine


This is a small project that was not planned. I made these photographs in Guatemala in an ONG orphanage in the jungle of Rio Dulce. I wanted to photograph children with their best friend; failing parents, our best friend is often a refuge against the outside world. I wanted to do a project that moved away from the stereotype of the poor and sad orphans. I photographed the children and then asked them two little questions. This has not imparted any interesting information. But it reveals nevertheless, that basic friendship is something very pure and simple in the heart of children.

I love this series that you did. It really touched my heart. It shows that no matter where we are and in what kind of situation, we can always find a friend, or someone to share the place and situation with.

And your photos are always stunning, in my opinion.

A première vue j'ai cru que c'était une sculpture de Ron Mueck.
Très belle photographie, comme d'habitude. L'écho de bleu rend très bien.

I like the series, but shouldn't it be "they have known each other for..." instead of "they have known for..." in the answers?
