This is one of the very first photos I took in Kenya when I went to live there (I took many others twelve years before when I traveled to the country on holidays, but those were obviously totally different). It's actually so "old" that it's actually an analogic shot taken with the Nikon 8008 I had at the time. I believe it's quite visible by the quality of the grain of the film used.
I was yet again on location, shooting a documentary on education in a very rural area north of Nairobi.
The man portrayed here was a voluntary teacher and he's sitting at a child's desk in one of the few classrooms of the village school, which walls were made of a mixture of earth and cow dung kept together by a wood structure and some sheet metal.
I still remember that being a volunteer, there were no official teachers in the village, he was actually paid by the children's parents, according to their own means. He told me the average money he gained was more or less one hundred Bob a day, meaning a dollar a day.
I guess I positioned him sitting at the desk, under the sunbeam entering from a small window on the sidewall, because it looked like a Saint to me.
