I stumbled upon these beautiful images on NPR this weekend. The photojournalist Betty Press lived in Africa for a little over twenty years, and captured something beautiful. Press stated in her interview that she went to Africa to photograph images of "beauty, creativity and courage of the people," versus the poverty stricken Africa we seem to be inundated with on a regular basis. Her new book, I Am Because We Are: African Wisdom In Image and Proverb (filled with all these lovelies)...now on my Christmas wish list.
I want this somewhere in my home...would make me smile every time.
