Kid with the eyes of a grown up.

 

Kids in the developing or third world mature faster than kids in the developing world. This is for obvious reasons. However, it always strikes me when you look into the eyes of a child and you get such a mature, conscious and strong look back, a look that you would rather expect from a grown up.

 

A friend of mine was doing a trip in West Africa on a motorbike and I joined him for a day. The photos in this series were taken during some of the stops along the way.
