Bienvenidos a la Casa Guatemala
bestfriend photography at Orphanage

This is a small project that was not planned. I made these photographs in Guatemala in an ONG orphanage in the jungle of Rio Dulce. I wanted to photograph children with their best friend; failing parents, our best friend is often a refuge against the outside world. I wanted to do a project that moved away from the stereotype of the poor and sad orphans. I photographed the children and then asked them two little questions. This has not imparted any interesting information. But it reveals nevertheless, that basic friendship is something very pure and simple in the heart of children.

First question Q1: How long you know you
Second question Q2: Why are you a bestfriend

I also invite you to visit the web site of the orphane :
