Photographer's Note

Here is another photo with a kind of fake Christmas message. This little child has of course nothing in common with THAT child, supposedly born at this time of the year, long ago. But although this old photo from 1982 was taken in a not so favourable light, and is not scanned very well (I did it years ago), I like this view of a very young mother breastfeeding her small baby while waiting patiently for her turn to have her child's health checked up.

This is from a village in southwestern Burkina Faso (then called Upper Volta) in early 1982. I had gone there with people from an NGO which financed regular health controls of the smallest children in the countryside.

Years ago I posted this photo in B&W, and two WS, from the same day. Today I offer no additional photos. I have several more B&W pictures, but I decided they were not scanned well enough.

Today's photo was scanned from a Kodachrome slide. Here is a larger version.
