Photographer’s Notes: During our boat ride across Lake Kivu, on the western edge of Rwanda, we made a pitstop at a hotel with a large patio overlooking the lake. While we were up there, we spotted this older man on the street below. Based on his outfit, let alone his face, we all felt he oozed personality.
Being in the company of Eric Lafforgue, a professional photographer, means always having someone ready to position others in just the right way to get a good shot, as was the case with the old man in the pink shirt.
As I had already been printing a few photographs for the Dog Meets World project during our break, I also made sure to print one for this man as a keepsake of the impromptu photo shoot he encountered that day while going about his normal business.
