Great COSTANTINO 2022-03-25 23:58

Hello dear Christine
and have a nice week end
nice timing for you for the
best photo with this little girl...
but my question here is....
...that it is better to protect
small children and avoiding
to show their faces....

Default To COSTANTINO: children portraits

hello Costantino; I understand your point of view and I do not publish a derogatory photo for the children;
for this day I had asked the permission of the schools and the parents, and the children came to be photographed with pleasure or timidity also; all photos have been printed and made available to families.
During all my stay in Cameroon I always asked for permission to photograph, except for a few photos from far away but I never made photos in secret, I showed my camera well.
I had some respected refusals of course; a man had refused at first, then he accepted on condition that I did not sell his portrait; for me it was obvious! His portrait is great but I forbid myself to publish it or expose it... Last summer I exhibited in a chapel some photos of African mothers, I was criticized of not selling them.... but a smile offered cannot be sold!
