This is NIONKURU Pacific and he lives in Bukomero village in Rwanda. I was there first on assignment and when it was over, I returned to the village to take more pictures on my own. Barefoot and big eyed, one morning Pacific followed me around to a nearby quarry, where two men were struggling to break rocks for a house they were building. He sat not too far from the men and practiced some rock breaking with his own little hands. The bright sharp rocks made for an interesting background to his childish round face. He seemed to like the camera and it, no doubt, liked him back.
