..for completely destroying my serious, pretentious Cape Verdean family portrait!!
Cape Verde. Preguica/Sao Nicolau June 12.
He approached me on the street and asked “señor.. usted puede hacerme el favor de tomar una foto de mi familia?” Mister.. can you do me the favor of taking a photo of my family?
This was in Huandoval in 1979, a small isolated village in the Peruvian Andes.
I went with him in to his house and suggested them to sit down in the doorway.
When finished the man in the house thanked me in a sincere way and invited me for a
drink. There was never any desire expressed for a copy of the picture, they just seemed happy enough for having their portrait taken.
Hope they are connected to the web today and google on “Huandoval”. If someone recognize this family I would be grateful for some information.
