Testimony

Robertsport, Liberia.

Inspecting a net on a beached fishing canoe, Testimony plays for a picture. Testimony is 26 years old and in 10th grade of school. He is proud that he can read and shows by scratching words in the sand. Liberia’s civil wars (1989-2003) devastated the education system, which has been slow to recover. Today, adults are trying to complete an education missed as children.

    Very beautiful. Amazed at how many look like oil paintings. If you ever have a show…

      Thank you Ora. Actually I am framing several pictures and have a small show in mind, but need to make the logistic happen before I get ahead of myself.
