Emiliano Brunori: Kids in Taquile II
I usually don’t add comments to my photos, but this one has a real story.
In Taquile I was hosted by a family: they made a living just on fishing and tourism. Early in the morning, I go out for having breakfast and meet this little kid. I show him the camera, he nods and I take this photo, then the chat went as follows, with me trying to be empathic to the kid:
“Hola pequeño, ¿cómo te llamas?”.
“No es importante”.
Saying no more, he and his sister guided me to their house, where I was having breakfast. Their mother served me, ordering them to go help their father.
I couldn’t say a word for quite a long time, really thinking for the first time about my relationship with the local people while travelling.
