Portrait Of Brother And Sister – Afar Revisited

by John Downey

I decided to re-post this image from 2011.  The arresting gaze speaks to the confidence of the Afar people.  Seconds before I took this, these two children and other siblings nearby were laughing and hiding behind one another.  When I raised the camera and pointed at the lens for them to look, they came together, leaned in, and froze.
