really nice picture, it reminds me of the first pictures in 19 century, where making a picture was a really serious affair.
the only think that makes me uncomfortable is the "bluish grey" athmosphere from contemporary films and of most digital cameras

i like the comparison with the 19th century when "making a picture was a really serious affair", it reminds me some of my own old family portraits

I like that you are teaching the students there about photography and teaching us about Malawi. The B&W works well, although colour might have too. In this case the graininess in B&W adds to the mood. TFS. Karin

Thanks for starting this project Paul!
Tell us more about it when you can. How is is working out? Who does the processing? I am guessing you do the instruction, processing and post-processing. Are you able to return the photos to the villagers?
I'm fascinated by the varied expressions from the children to the older family members. I am guessing the father is a farmer (from the boots)? Six kids in all?
Looking forward to more!
