It was a beautiful encounter in the streets of Koutiala, Mali. The picture seems to be staged, but that was not the case. These girls happily showed me what they could do with a tire and thoroughly enjoyed doing so together. It was fun for me too, because of the spectacular display of light and the colors of the actual portrait that seem to splash off the canvas.
“Not the standard penetrating black and white, but a spectacular color photo. It is a pleasant street scene in Mali. The color scheme, the different expressions on the faces, and the beautiful light make this a nice portrait.” (Judge Zoom.nl)
