From Lake Eyasi to Paris
Hadzabe Girl, a Dickenesque portrait taken in the Laye Eyasi district of Tanzania, has been announced as one of the winners of the 2022 Prix de la Photographie de Paris. Taking out Silver for the Portraiture Children category, the image has now earned accolades across the United States, Australasia and Europe. The picture, taken under a ledge of rock, is of a young child in wonder at the person before her, her pride tempered by wariness, carrying an inner strength belying her age. Hadzabe Girl will be shown in Paris in November 2022.
