14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
Hiking in Bupoto

This image was captured in the remote village of Bupoto, in Eastern Uganda. For many kids in this village, my volunteer group were the first white people, or "mzungus" they'd ever seen. Their curious gazes seem to ask, "Who are these visitors, why are they here?"
