Angelo takes a small digital camera with him and captures extraordinary images of village life; blacksmiths working under primitive conditions, adults playing a backgammon-like game in the dirt, a goat being killed and butchered, women pounding corn to make flour. Despite never having used a camera before, Angelo’s photos are a unique insider’s view of traditional village life, the people, the markets, the hut building, the cooking and the spontaneous outbursts of celebration.

Proceeds from the sale of signed copies of the photos and DVD will assist the building of a school room in the same village that is featured in the exhibition.
