” the water boy” – Burundi, 2004

giorgio-faedo-37“Just as water is the essence of life, this moment captures both the innocence and naivety of youth and life with a classic photograph of a boy and a ¬†water-bowl. It is the bowl in which life-sustaining water will be transported and stored. In Burundi, locals have confronted and overcome the terror of war and adversity of famine to etch out for themselves a nation of stoic and creative people who are building for new generations opportunity, peace and prosperity, not seen for decades.”
