15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
Outside Looking In

We were doing an outreach in Burundi in the province of Cibitoke. Burundi is the 2nd poorest country in the world and we were there to give rice and beans and soap to the local villagers. All of the families that were there waiting for their food and soap were waiting inside very patiently. The lighting was bad on the inside and it was very cramped so I walked around the building to shoot from the outside in. I found this broken window and the lady sitting by it just happened to catch my lens. She was patiently waiting for her rice and beans and soap.
