16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
Lion Boy

These children live in a small village near the trading center of Namungalwe in Uganda. One of the great joys of working in Uganda was how the kids reacted to my presence. They couldn't get enough of the camera. And this young man was doing his best to show me his lion-face for this portrait.
