Challenged + School, Kisumu, Kenya, 2007

As I once again get ready to sleep tonight thousands of kilometers away from home, I am reminded that countless others have infinitely less. In this series are children who live in a group home outside of Kisumu, Kenya. They have one set of clothes and sleep in a large room with others. Yet they have the most attentive, loving team looking after them... helping them even with their pictures for our session.

This young boy however did his best to compose himself for his portrait, all under his own power. What it took him to do so one cannot imagine... even 14 years after this series was made. I'm humbled by his strength in the face of such odds, and will wait patiently until it's time for me to go home.
