In the photographer's words: "This photo was taken during my fieldwork researching cholera epidemics in the city of Maroua in the far north of Cameroon. This family lives in the poorest neighborhood in Maroua and the one most ravaged by the 2009-2011 cholera outbreak. They agreed to have their picture taken and inadvertently, I was able to capture the gentle spirit and joyful soul of the Cameroonian people."
