In the photographer's words: "I spent a portion of my summer in Burundi, Africa traveling to remote villages doing missions work there. Everywhere I went the children were fascinated with my camera. In an effort to capture the raw beauty of the children without them noticing I lowered my camera to my waist and shoot frame after frame. I feel this image captures the innocence and wonder that was so natural in the eyes of the children."
