A Young Mother

In a small village near the trading center of Namungalwe in Uganda, this young mother was kind enough to show me her new baby, a sleepy and cuddly little guy who kept a finger hitched on his mother’s collar. The warmth and openness of Ugandan villagers was incredible, and I will always cherish the memories of moments such as this.
