Photographer's Note

A boy in a teeny weeny village next to a teeny weeny village called Agbodrafo on the southern shores of Lake Togo in the teeny weeny nation of Togo. Lots of teeny weenies, but the people and children have hearts that would make any nation jealous.

...coming from Benin to the east, the people of Togo were a welcome relief. Honestly, looking back, the people of Togo were some of the nicest and most refreshing of all the countries I’ve visited in West Africa (including Cameroon, Nigeria, Benin, Togo, Ghana, Burkina Faso, Mali and Senegal).

...Lome, the capital, hot, sweltering actually. Heaving with people. The pizza place isn’t open. Damn. Humanity and chaos living side by side, intertwined and unseparable.

...Voodoo, homemade african whiskey and a people just wanting to live is what you find outside the capital. Go walking on the shore of Lake Lagdo, in the palms and villages dotted around the farmlands, around the wells and down the streetsa and you will find an Africa that really makes one think about some of the values of the west. Just good, nice, outwardly friendly and curious people.

...damn, it is hot.
