Young Roma Boy, Albania


Korca, Albania July 2009

What are little boys made of?
What are little boys made of?
Frogs and snails
And puppy-dogs' tails,
That's what little boys are made of.


There's a story behind this young boy's eyes, isn't there? Because of our language barriers I couldn't find out what it was... but I have my ideas. He was obviously happy- you can see that around his eyes, but there's a hesitancy around his smile. I wanted to gather him into my arms and take him with me. He's a charmer, that's for sure.

Definitely a charmer.
And as well as the hesitancy around that smile, I see a bit of mischievousness!
