Mother's Love

Category: People


Photo and caption by Nava Derakhshani

I captured this moment of love, affection and complete acceptance from a beautiful Ethiopian mother to her little shy daughter who was intimidated by my foreign presence. Here, she is consoled to have her mother's assurance and the exchange between them is warm, safe, loving and beautiful. I tried to capture their moment and give a sense of their rural context. I therefore really like the cock walking past in the bright outdoor dusty background.

Location: Village outside Mekelle, Tigray, Ethiopia
